Victory Medal

A Victory Medal was issued at the end of the First World War and a second one was authorized on July 6, 1945 for the Second World War. It is interesting that the date of authorization was after the conclusion of the war in Europe on May 8, 1945, but prior to the surrender of Japan on September 2, 1945.
