The Victoria Cross is the highest award for gallantry in the face of the enemy. All who have received it have shown conspicuous bravery, many at the cost of their own lives. The design by Claire Aldridge focuses on the actual medal, whilst the design by Clive Duncan honours the heroic acts performed by the recipients.
