Miniature circular cupro-nickel medal with claw and ribbon bar suspension; the face with the crowned head of King George VI facing left, circumscribed ‘GEORGIVS VI D : G : BR : OMN : REX ET INDIAE IMP: (George VI by the Grace of God King of Great Britain, Emperor of India); the reverse with the arms of Australia centrally, circumscribed above ‘THE AUSTRALIA SERVICE MEDAL’ and dated ‘1939-1945’ below; diameter 18.15mm (0.71 inch); on original ribbon with glue residue to the reverse.

The medal was instituted in 1949 and originally awarded to Australians who had served for eighteen months overseas or for 3 years at home between 3 September 1939 and 3 September 1945. In 1999 this was reduced to 30 days full time service or 90 days part-time service.

A good period miniature.
