13 Million Medals (1946)
The end of the war in 1945 finally presented an opportunity to strike the millions of campaign and service medals for troops who had taken part in action across the globe. The Campaign Stars had been considered as early as 1943 but, in order to save metal for armaments and munitions, production did not take place until after the war.
