The Government of South Vietnam issued this ‘star’ to all those eligible for the Vietnam Medal. These were crudely made and were unnamed (without recipients name and details), as a result the Australian Government manufactured a superior one which was named.
The medal is a gold and white enamelled star with a green, red and gold centre motif.
The ribbon is green with three white stripes. A ribbon device bearing the inscription ‘1960-‘ is worn on the medal ribbon. A smaller device with the inscription ’60-‘ is worn on the ribbon bar.
Approximately 50,000 were issued to Australians.
