Circular gilt metal medal with loop for ribbon suspension; the face with the head and shoulders portraits of a farm worker and an industrial worker facing left towards a banner bearing the socialist-era Romanian arms; the reverse with a stylised ear of corn, dated ‘19’ ‘62’ to either side, a five-pointed star below, circumscribed ‘ÎN CINSTEA ÎNCHEIERII COLECTIVIZĂRI AGRICULTURII’; on original ribbon and pentagonal hanger mounted for wear; in rare fitted case of issue, the lid now separated from the base and with two corners split. The Medal was instituted by Decree 290 of 12 May 1962 to mark the completion of the collectivisation of agriculture begun in 1947. As was usual, collectivisation led to disaffection of the rural population and a steep decline in agricultural productivity.
