Five-pointed silvered bronze star with broad pointed arms imposed on a similar star with broader arms; the face with a circular central medallion bearing the head and shoulders of an heroic male and female worker facing left, the female with her right hand raised, holding a flower between her forefinger and thumb, an open book beyond, a gilt hammer and sickle above, all imposed on a larger circular medallion, a cogwheel edge above, a stylised laurel wreath below; the reverse plain with vertical pin for wear bearing the maker’s mark ‘ZNB – KOVNICA’ (the Belgrade Mint); diameter 44.25mm (1.74 inches); weight 25.61 grams (0.90 oz). The Order was instituted on 1 May 1945 in three classes by the A.V.N.O.J. (Antifašističko Vijeće Narodnog Oslobođenja Jugoslavije = Anti-Fascist Council of National Liberation of Yugoslavia), de facto government of Yugoslavia at the end of World War II. It was awarded for outstanding contributions to the economy, production and building communism. The Order was cancelled in 1991. A superb piece of socialist art.
