The court mount method was originally developed and introduced into service for use in Britain's Royal Courts to eliminate noise generated by swinging medals during court proceedings.
This method comprises medals suspended by an extended length of riband wrapped around a stiff backing board, sewn and secured in a fixed position.
Allegro Medals and Framing does not employ techniques that involve the use of hot glue, silicon or adhesive products to secure medals to the backing board. In the majority of cases this practice significantly contributes to medal damage. Potential for damage to occur is considerably increased when additional medals need to be added and the disassembly of medal groups is required.
The court mount method is the directed method of medal mounting for the Australian Defence Force.
