A League of Nations Medal is an international campaign medal that is awarded by the League of Nations to various micronational servicemen for service in peacekeeping missions.

Multiple versions of this medal have been made to represent each campaign, though if a serviceman has a fair amount of these medals, he may wish to substitute it for a singular medal. Also, certain militaries may opt to have their servicemen display one medal rather than multiple medals.

The most common League of Nations medal is the standard LN decoration known simply as the League of Nations Medal. Most countries bestow this award for any action in which a member of the military participated in a joint LN activity.

In situations where a service member participated in multiple LN operations, campaign clasps are authorized as attachments to the League of Nations Medal.

The UN has authorised the award of numerals to be attached to the medal ribbon. The qualification for these numerals is not to indicate the number of campaigns served in, but rather the number of qualifying periods of service, which are counted as 180 consecutive days after the initial qualifying period of ninety days.
