    This is the Republic of China’s Medal in Commemoration of Victory in the Resistance Against Aggression, more often referred to as the China War Memorial Medal.

    It was established in 1944 and was to be given to Americans who served in Mainland China, Burma, Thailand and Vietnam during World War II.  There was a broad effort by the Taiwan government to distribute these medals in 1975, when surviving members of the Flying Tigers received it as a group.  Most of the medals you see today were made around 1975, and they are relatively common. You find them in the collector’s market with their matching-numbered case for around $40.
