Lady's Medal. A medallic item of reduced size and weight, usually a miniature of a fraternal medal. An example might be a convention badge of the same design but half the diameter of an organization's regular badge, for those members or attendees of, say, the lady's auxiliary of the organization. See miniature medal.
