Circular silver medal with Swedish crown and ornate scroll suspension; the face with the head of King Gustaf V in relief facing left, signed ‘A.L.’ on the base of the neck for A. Lindberg and circumscribed ‘GUSTAF V SVERIGES GÖT O VEND KONUNG’ (Gustaf V by the Grace of God King of Sweden); the reverse with an oval wreath above the attribution ‘TILL NILS FERDINAND NILSSON’ and circumscribed ‘FÖR NIT OCH REDLIGHET I RIKETS TJÄNST’ (for Zeal and Devotion in the Service of the Kingdom); marked on the rim ‘SILVER’ and ‘1945’; on original ribbon mounted for wear; in fitted case of issue.

The Medal was instituted by King Gustav IV Adolf in 1803 to be awarded to those who blamelessly managed a public position and demonstrated zeal and honesty as an employee of the state for at least 30 years.

The Medal reorganised in 1830 by King Karl XIV Johan and amended in 1947.
