The history of the Moscow Mint started in 1942. The Leningrad Mint evacuated to Krasnokamsk could not accomplish orders for the production of military orders and awards. The state award production was the first order executed at the Mint built in Moscow during the war. The state awards are still among the products of the enterprise today.
The practice of wearing order bands in the shape of a rosette, as well as miniature copies of the State awards of the Russian Federation, marks of distinction for perfect service and badges to titles of honor on everyday clothes was introduced by Regulation on State awards of the Russian Federation approved by Decree No. 1099 dated September 7, 2010 of the President of the Russian Federation.
You can buy miniature copies of the State awards at the Moscow Mint – Branch of Goznak. It is necessary to show a certificate that you are awarded with an order, a medal or a mark of distinction.
