The other Allied countries, with the exception of China and Montenegro, that issued Victory medals were: Belgium, Brazil, Cuba, Czechoslovakia, France, Great Britain, Greece, Italy, Japan, Romania, Thailand, the Union of South Africa and the United States of America.
A figure of Victory standing facing with wings and arms spread, around her the rays of the rising sun; in her right hand she holds a bouqet and in her left a laurel wreath.
The shield of Portugal and a line of crosses with the legend MEDALHA DA ViTORiA.
