Frank Draskovic passed along word of the launch of the International Phaleristics Association after two and a half years of planning. Thanks, and good luck to the group. Here's some background from their website.
Who We Are
The International Phaleristics Association (IPA) is a non-profit organization founded in 2020 that is dedicated to the study and promotion of the history, art, and culture of orders, decorations, and medals.
The International Phaleristics Association is dedicated to the preservation and research of world Orders, Decorations, Medals, and Awards.
Our members come from all over the world and include historians, collectors, researchers, and anyone with an interest in the subject. We provide a forum for the exchange of information and ideas and promote the study of phaleristics through meetings, publications, and other educational activities.
What We Do
The IPA publishes a quarterly journal, The Phalerist, which contains articles, book reviews, and news of interest to members. The association also organizes regular meetings, lectures, and exhibitions to provide opportunities for members to meet, share their knowledge and interests, and learn more about the field.
It is the goal of IPA to preserve and catalog Orders, Decorations, and Medals from around the
world. Our databases will serve as a searchable catalog of Medals. Through community outreach,
we will introduce a new generation to the history and beauty of Orders, Decorations, Medals and
Members get access to all our exclusive publications, our shared medals database, a desktop app and much more!
Unfortunately, much of the website will be hidden from the larger community behind a members-only firewall.
