Get them made locally

"...National is committed to examine all cases of where there has not been medallic recognition for service where there should have been. This is a small, but simple way for us to ensure that those who serve their country receive some small token of thanks from New Zealand. National wants to make sure that New Zealand expresses its thanks in a tangible way.

Therefore, we will implement the RSA proposal to introduce a 'New Zealand Defence Medal" recognizing service in both the regular and non-regular services. The estimated one-of cost of this initiative is $750,000..."

Not '100 day' material, but not a hard one to get underway, either.
