The Difference Between an Award, Medal, and a Medallion Explained By The Monterey Company.

So what’s the difference between these three custom options?

Medallions tend to be larger than Medals and are often added to a chain or glamorous ribbon so they can be worn around the neck as a personal ornament. This is why medallions use a higher quality of materials, as they're used as a way to recognize someone for their outstanding achievements. Because this lifetime token is treasured forever, it needs to be well made using the best materials, including the enamel and the plating style. Medals and custom medallions have some differences, in terms of their size, purpose and design. Custom medals are relatively smaller. They are usually worn around the neck with a colorful ribbon or attached to a pin. They are commonly used to acknowledge and commemorate achievements in areas like sports, academics, festivals, the military or even corporate environments. Medals typically showcase designs with engravings or relief sculptures on both sides symbolizing the importance of the accomplishment they represent.

Furthermore in regards to custom medallions, they are larger and more substantial in size. They are usually designed as pieces rather than being meant for personal wear. Medallions serve as decorations and symbols of commemoration; you'll often find them displayed on walls in buildings or as part of monuments and plaques. Because of their size custom medallions often feature elaborate designs that include detailed artwork, text or inscriptions that emphasize the historical, cultural or symbolic significance associated with what they represent. To summarize briefly; custom medals are items used for individual recognition while custom medallions are bigger decorative pieces intended for display or commemoration in various settings. The choice between the two depends on factors such as intended purpose, desired size specifications, and design preferences.

How Are Medallions Made

Medallions come in thicknesses usually ranging from 1/8 inch, to 1/4 inch depending on their size and purpose. These decorative items, crafted from materials such as brass, bronze or zinc often undergo plating to enhance their appeal and protect them from corrosion.

When it comes to brass medallions the plating process involves immersing the medallion in a bath with finishes like gold, silver or nickel. Brass medallions can be manufactured using casting techniques (where molten brass is poured into molds) or stamping techniques (where shapes are cut from brass sheets).

  • Bronze medallions also undergo plating. They can be adorned with finishes like bronze, gold or silver. The manufacturing process for bronze medallions typically involves casting bronze into molds.
  • As for zinc medallions, they are often chosen for their cost effectiveness. They can be plated with finishes like nickel or chrome. These medallions are typically created through die casting by injecting zinc into molds.

Following the plating and manufacturing stages, medallions undergo polishing to achieve an shiny surface. The choice of material, plating technique and manufacturing method depends on factors such, as desired appearance, budget constraints and your individual specific requirements. It seems like a lot, but our customer service reps will make this fun and easy for you.
