The Efficiency Medal is a long service award for warrant officers, non-commissioned officers, and other ranks of the New Zealand Territorial Force. The medal is awarded for twelve years of continuous and efficient service. First awarded in 1931, it was a replacement for the Colonial Auxiliary Forces Long Service Medal, which was first awarded in 1902. New Zealand is one of the few countries that continues to award the Efficiency Medal.
