Circular gilt bronze medal with loop for ribbon suspension; the face with the portraits of Karađorđe Petrović (left) and King Petar I, a laurel branch below, circumscribed ‘КАРАЋОРЋЕ ПЕТРОВИЋ * * ПЕТАР I КРАЉ СРБИЈЕ’ (Karađorđe Petrović * * Petar I King of Serbia), signed ‘ВТ’ (for the designer Vladislav Titelbah); the reverse with a seated soldier and a standing female figure representative of Serbia holding a flag, her left arm aloft, a radiant rising sun and the Monastery of Žica in the background, circumscribed ‘1804-1904. СПОМЕНИЦА СТОГОДИШІЬИЦЕ УСТАНКА И КРУНИСАЊА КРАЉА ПЕТРА I’ (1804-1904 Commemoration of the Centenary of the Insurrection and the Coronation of King Petar I); surface rubbing; on replaced but correct ribbon. This unofficial medal was commissioned and paid for by a number of Serbian patriotic associations to commemorate the centenary of the first Serb uprising against Ottoman rule in 1804 and the coronation of King Petar I Karađorđević. Vladislav Titelbah (1842-1927), designer of the medal, was a noted Serbian painter and graphic artist who conducted much research on Serbian folk art and, in particular, the artefacts of medieval Serbia. The medal is scarce.
