Calgary- Easter Weekend

I will be in Calgary, on business, from Wednesday April 12-Sunday April 16th.  Although I will not be setting up at the AACCA/MCCofC show, I will be walking the room on Saturday.  I can be reached on my mobile 613-883-9707 if you wish to connect with me regarding items for sale, items to consign or any […]


New Canadian Badges

Please visit the “Badges” section of our website to see an exceptional offering of all new postings including some of the rarest Canadian badges ever made.


Sale

I am in the process of marking down a number of older-stock items on the website.  If there is something you have been admiring for a while, I invite you to make me a reasonable offer. I’m clearing out older items to make a room for a new collection. I will be in Boston from […]


Photography

We have just upgraded our photography equipment and have begun the process of rephotographing some of the older images on our website.  By year end, it is our intention to have replaced all images on the site with high-quality, macro-lens photographs. In the meantime, please do not hesitate to ask us for a new image on […]


email changes- magma.ca address no longer viable

Our internet service provider will be retiring the magma.ca email on September 30th 2016.  If you have not already done so, please be sure to change your records to correspond with me at tanya@medalsofwar.com


New additions new week!

I have just returned from a memorable and important father-daughter trip with my dad to Croatia.  With my feet barely on the ground, I’m heading out this afternoon for the C.S.M.M.I. show in Burlington. I have a phenomenal offering of new material sitting on my desk and I will dedicate next week to updating the website. […]


Summer Update

I will be away in Europe from May 25th until June 9th.  Although Christina and Nick will be in the office, depending on the item purchased, there may be some delay in processing your order during that time.  I will be present at the C.S.M.M.I. show (Burlington) on the 17th and 18th of June.  Summer hours […]


Upcoming shows 2016

I will be in attendance at the following 2016 military shows: Saturday February 6th- General Sikorski Hall (Oshawa) March 25th and 26th- 2016 AACCA Easter Arms Show (Calgary) Saturday April 2nd- Etobicoke Olympium (Toronto) Saturday April 30th- Ottawa Military Heritage Show (Nepean Sportsplex)


2016-the year ahead!

Volatility in the Canadian economy, due to our weak commodity-based markets, means our Canadian dollar continues to slide.  Sitting at 69 cents to the U.S. currency, our Canadian dollar has not been this low in years.  International buyers recognize the advantage of purchasing from our Canadian-priced site.  Canadian collections continue to come my way and I […]


Technical Difficulties

Monday November 23rd, 2015.  We are experiencing technical difficulties with the order form section of our website.  Products can be placed in your shopping cart but you will not be able to proceed to checkout.  Our service provider is currently working on the problem which requires reinstallation of our security certificate.  Please contact us directly at 613-258-5999 […]


International medals

We have been slowly adding items to our International medals pages. Rather than listing these items in the what’s new section, we are placing them directly into their appropriate country/category.  Please visit these pages to see new additions. We are working our way through every country in our inventory.  


Upcoming shows!

I will be in attendance at the Etobicoke show Saturday September 19th. I will also be present at the Ottawa Military Show on November 14th. Please contact me if there is anything you would like me to bring along.  Thank you.  Tanya Ursual


Low Canadian dollar= Great deals!

We have seen a dramatic increase in orders from our website the last two weeks. International buyers are taking advantage of the low Canadian dollars to purchase material at the equivalent of a 25% discount.  At 75 cents to the US dollar, the Canadian dollar is the lowest it has been in eleven years.  For […]


Summer Holidays- new material

27 July, 2015. Our team is on rotating summer vacation so there has been some delay in posting new material. I have acquired two large medals collections in recent weeks and will begin the process of adding that material to the website. The collections are largely comprised of early British campaign medals but include some […]


Welcome to our new website

Welcome to our newly redesigned website. Visitors to the site will enjoy a brighter more modern store with a new layout. Those revisions are cosmetic but what lies underneath it all is where the real change has occurred. We have now been able to link our paypal account with the ecommerce system on this site so payments are […]


New Website- March posting

Hello everyone. A few notes today: 1) Our ISP is slowly phasing out all magma addresses. If you have used egu@magma.ca to contact me in the past, please amend your records to send all future emails to tanya@medalsofwar.com or tanyaursual@gmail.com 2) We are a few weeks away from launching our new website. The new site […]
