Miniature circular silver medal with loop and ring for ribbon suspension; the face with a cross pattée with lions of Finland between the arms and a central stylised rose; the reverse with an oak branch imposed on a sword, a rayed rising sun beyond and circumscribed ‘ISÄNMAAN HYVÄKSI’ (for the Good of the Fatherland) below; diameter 17.0mm (0.67 inch); on probably original ribbon.

The Order was established on 28 January 1919 to replace the Order of the Cross of Liberty and may be awarded to both military and civilian Finns and foreigners for outstanding acts benefiting Finland. It was designed by the great Finnish artist Akseli Gallen-Kallela (1865-1931).

The 1st class Medal is awarded to non-commissioned officers for 12 years’ faithful service and to civilians of equivalent rank for 10 years’ faithful service in government or equivalent employ.
