Miniature circular silvered bronze medal with laterally-pierced loop for suspension; the face with the crowned arms of Hungary imposed on crossed swords within a wreath of oak and laurel; the reverse with a soldier’s helmet above the dates ‘1914-1918’, inscribed ‘PRO DEO ET PATRIA’ (Latin = For God and Country) above, a laurel wreath below; some wear to silvering; diameter 18.07mm (0.71 inch); without ribbon. The medal was instituted on 14 November 1929 to acknowledge those who had participated in World War I. There were two versions, one for combatants and one for non-combatants. The two were essentially the same in design but that for combatants, as in this example, had crossed swords on the face and a helmet on the reverse. The miniature is not often found.
