Circular cupro-nickel medal on double kukri ribbon suspension bar; the face with the head and shoulders portraits of King Bīrendra and Queen Aishwarya facing left, a circumscription in Nepali characters above; the reverse with crossed kukri centrally, an inscription below and a circumscription in Nepali characters, the date ‘2058’ at the base; on original ribbon. The medal was instituted in 2001 to be awarded for service to the development of Nepal. The King and Queen were assassinated on 1 June 2001 and the Nepalese monarchy was abolished in June 2008, the medal falling into abeyance. Queen Aishwarya was reputed to be the dominant partner and it is interesting to note that she is in front of the King on the medal. The medal, issued for a short time and in such circumstances, is rare.
