The Victoria Cross is our highest award for
Valour and out ranks all other decorations.
It was first given by Queen Victoria in 1856 to
honour those who were in the Crimean War. It
is struck from bronze that comes from a melted
down cannon captured from the Russians in the
Crimean War. So far 1,355 individuals have
been awarded a Victoria Cross.
It is given for Extreme Bravery carried out
under direct enemy fire. It is a bronze cross
with a lion standing on a crown and the legend
reads ‘’For Valour’. Today an original can cost
several hundred thousand pounds. This is a
beautiful replica with the word ‘Copy’ on the
reverse, so no one can pass it off as real. The
ribbon is ribbed red and just like on the original.
We are tired of people asking £50.00 or more
for a poor copy of the Victoria Cross. Our
friends, who do such excellent work, took
months to plan and make this exact copy. We are
sure you will appreciate the quality of the workmanship
and our incredible pricing.
At Coincraft we know what our clients like
and we try and give it to them.
