Pentagonal gilt metal rayed plaque with green enamel laurel wreath suspension; the face with a centrally-imposed five-pointed deep red enamel gilt-edged star bearing the polychrome enamel communist-era seal of the City of Sofia; the reverse plain, inscribed ‘СОФИЯ СТОЛИЦА НА НАРОДНА РЕПУБЛИКА БЪЛГАРИЯ’ (Sofia Capital of the People’s Republic of Bulgaria) and dated ‘1879-1979’; age oxidisation spots to the reverse; on original ribbon with pentagonal hanger mounted for wear. On 2 April 1979 a medal commemorative of the centenary of Sofia as the capital of Bulgaria was instituted and was awarded on the occasion of the centenary. By Decree 2489 of the State Council of 17 September 1982, the award of the medal was amended and permitted ‘from time to time’ as opposed to ‘once’ and it was reissued with the city seal in polychrome enamel rather than gilt and with the wording on the reverse amended. A good example of a relatively rare medal.
