Navy Day Commemorative Medals

Navy Day is an annual celebration held in several countries to honor and recognize the importance of the nation's naval and maritime forces, representing an opportunity to honor sailors and all personnel serving in the Navy.


In Portugal, since 1980, the Clube Militar Naval and the Clube do Sargento da Armada have, annually, commissioned a minted medal to commemorate this day. After 1984, the Clube de Praças da Armada also joined this initiative.


Take the opportunity to visit us and discover the exhibition with medals alluding to the Navy, on display at the Sacred Art Center of the Carlos Machado Museum until June 15th, 2023.
