    Any resources available for numbers of medals issued?

    Recommended Posts

    I have a collection of 36 different US medals (some in sets, some either just full size or miniature) and I'm busy building a database for it as part of the hobby. One thing I would like to include in my database is roughly how many of a particular medal was issued but I can't seem to find reliable numbers for the more common medals. Is there some resource online that could help out?

    I do realize that I will never have an accurate count to the latest medal issued but a rough estimate would be nice.

    Awards of the top two valor decorations (Medal of Honor and the service crosses) and recent (Since Sept. 11 2001) awards of the Silver Star: https://valor.defense.gov

    US Army historical award statistics: https://www.hrc.army.mil/content/Awards and Decorations Statistics by Conflict

    The Army used to have year-by-year statistics for peacetime awards in recent decades, but I can't find that resource anymore.

    I can't find similar numbers for the other services.
