I am betting that in a few cases a firm in (lets say) London makes awards for a few countries.

As some of these are multi part medals, if they can use the same dies to 80% to make a medal from country XXX and country YYY... they try and get the designs amended to suit their needs.

Nice comparisons!

You're right. I am of the same opinion. But I'm sure it isn't only "London's case". What about this couple France-Armenia?

Very interesting thread.

I think that from a commercial/manufacturing point of view it makes sense to offer to use common dies and then change enamelling and central medallion. That way the 'extra die costs' are only for the central medallion. Its like wearing the same colour shirt with a different tie.

This is someting that would not be possible in the case of ODMs that are of single piece construction.

As for the post above, common ideology, rather than common dies are evidently the reason for the similarity.

Keep them coming!!!

Jim :cheers:

Of course, when we are talking about the communist leaders Kim and Dimitrov, the ideological similarity is obvious,

but Alexander the First was the KING of Yugoslavia :whistle:

Anyway Jim, thank for your kind words :beer:

True, but that did not mean he did not have certain political leanings :-) ... or at worst was just lacking imagination.

You do know the all those medals are the 'sons' of papa lenin (Tractor Lenin or Type 1)

(picture source: wikipedia)

..... which was instituted as early as April1930....

Guess you have a fourth one to add on now.... (and surprised you could have missed the father of them all) ;)

You are totally right. Moreover, this archetype (something encircled by a cereal wreath) is usual for Soviet and communist heraldry - from the very first Soviet order of the Red Banner and all types of the Soviet coat-of-arms

By the way, there were the numerous unrealized (or unofficial) projects of the Soviet orders based on this principle. For example:

Infact the Durov book for the order of Lenin shows several of the designs that never made it to the mint.

Again...very interesting thread. I will be following this :)

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
