Round in shape with a fitted clasp for the ribbon.
Sourced from the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet, concerning the wearing of “unofficial” medals:
Ex-service organisations sometimes commission their own unofficial medals to mark participation in particular military campaigns, periods of service or types of service that have not been recognised through the Australian honours system. Awards made by foreign governments which have not been approved by the Governor-General for acceptance and wear are also "unofficial". There are no restrictions to wearing such medals in appropriate private settings, such as a meeting of the relevant ex-service association, or a reception hosted by the relevant foreign government. Ideally, unofficial medals should not be worn at public ceremonial and commemorative events, but if they are worn as the occasion requests, the convention is that they are worn on the right breast.
