Unfortunately, due to to rising price of gold, certain items in our range have regrettably seen an increase in price. 

NODA offers a superb and totally exclusive range of medals, bars, badges and certificates for your society to present to members, to show appreciation and to commemorate their years of service to amateur theatre.

The most highly prized award in the world of amateur theatre is undoubtedly the NODA Long Service Medal, signifying 25 years of active and unpaid service, on stage or off. 

Every subsequent five years of service can then be marked by adding a Silver Bar, culminating after 50 years of service with the Gold Bar, and after 60 years with the highly prestigious Diamond Bar.

Long Service Medals

Gilt Pins

55, 60, 65 and 70-year pins are, as with all NODA medals and badges, handcrafted and manufactured to an extremely high standard, and these pins are fine examples of just that. They make a beautiful, quality gift for those with more than 50 years' service to amateur theatre and can be attached to existing 50 and 60-year medal ribbons.


Normally presented by societies to individuals as an expression of gratitude, badges for 10, 15, 20, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50 and 60-years of service are available upon application, supported by confirmation from a society official. Service does not have to have been continuous, nor with one society alone.
