The medal was introduced in 1926 following the military coup d'état of 1926 of that year to be awarded to the Portuguese Public Security Forces for loyal service and exemplary conduct. Between 1910 and 1926 Portugal had no fewer than forty-five governments. Worsening economic conditions, widespread strikes, political chaos and the legacy of suffering terrible casualties in the Great War led to a crisis in 1926 and on 28 May the army acted to install an authoritarian regime. This Second Republic become the Estado Novo in 1933, led by António de Oliveira Salazar who ruled until deposed in 1974.
