The medal is nickel-silver with a modified Shield of the Australian Coat of Arms surmounted by the Defence Force Joint Service Emblem super-imposed on a background of the meridians of longitude on the obverse.

The reverse has clusters of mimosa blossoms surrounding a Federation Star bearing the inscription ‘FOR SERVICE’.

Ribbon

The ribbon colours are primarily variations of the Australian colours of green and gold in tones of the Australian bush. The central brown stripe symbolises the earth of Australia
