Purveyors of Authentic Militaria

Our History & Mission

 

eMedals was established in 1981 with the objective of connecting collectors on a global scale and providing a sense of integrity to dealership. The company started as a one man operation but soon expanded. In 1999 the first version of our e-commerce website was created. Then in 2008 a store-front was opened in Burlington, Ontario so the company could more effectively meet the demand. As time passed the client base grew as well, from being just Canadian to North American to International. We now ship items safely all over the world with speed and integrity. We have gone on to improve in every facet whether it is range of items offered or the quality of the client shopping experience. This along with our fundamental beliefs has helped as emerge as the largest militaria dealer in North America.

 

MISSION STATEMENT:
eMedals provides high quality items with a superior degree of expertise in all areas of militaria. We remain true to our underlying passions and strive to offer the global community of collectors with outstanding client care and first class selection.
