Large circular silvered metal medal with laterally-pierced loop for ribbon suspension; the face with the head and shoulders portrait of Emperor Franz Joseph I in military uniform facing right, circumscribed ‘FRANZ JOSEPH I V. G. G. KAISER V. OESTERREICH’ (Franz Joseph I, by the Grace of God Emperor of Austria); the reverse inscribed ‘DER TAPFERKEIT’ (Bravery) within a wreath laurel imposed on crossed standards; diameter 40.03mm (1.58 inches); on a recent trifold wartime ribbon. The medal has its origins in the commemorative medals created by Emperor Francis II at the end of the 18th Century for soldiers who had distinguished themselves on the field of battle. Since 1809, these medals have been referred to as the Medal for Bravery (Tapferkeitsmedaille) and were awarded to non-commissioned officers and other ranks for acts of bravery. This example bears the portrait of Emperor Franz Joseph I and is a collector’s copy of the medals issued between 1866 and 1914.
