The Belgian Red Cross


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have been given a HET BELGISCHE RODE KRUIS Bronze Medallion

in its original round cardboard presentation box which is in good all-round

order. The front of this large, heavy Medallion depicts a Pelican resting on

a shield containing a cross. The reverse has the inscription -

'HET BELGISCHE RODE KRUIS' around the upper rim of the Medallion

& in the centre 'ERKENTELIJKHEID AAN DE BLOEDGEVERS'.

Although I do collect militaria & Medals, I am led to believe this particular

item may be a Belgian Red Cross Medallion and possibly awarded to a

donor who has given 25 pints of blood. I wonder if anyone could

verify I have the correct information & a possible value of such a Medallion?

Kind regards,

Neville.

I think this is what you are looking for. The Blood Givers Medallion. Different styles but all for 25 pints. I pick them up for $10-$15 USD. More like $15 with the box. There is a different medallion for Plasma Givers.
