Miniature circular bronze medal with loop for ribbon suspension; the face with a view of the north coast of Haiti with the Citadelle Laferrière (Citadelle Henry Christophe) to the upper right, a palm tree in the left foreground, circumscribed above ‘HAITIAN CAMPAIGN’, dated ‘1919-1920’ at the base; the reverse with a bald American eagle, wings spread, perched on a naval anchor, flukes to the right, above the inscription ‘FOR SERVICE’, circumscribed above ‘UNITED STATES NAVY’, a wreath of oak and laurel below; age-toned; diameter 15.99mm (0.63 inch); on replaced correct ribbon mounted with pins for wear. The Medal was instituted by Navy Department General Orders Number 77 on 29 December 1921 to be awarded to Navy personnel who engaged in operations, either ashore or at sea, in Haiti between 1 April 1919 and 15 June 1920 to counter the peasant rebellion against American-backed policies including racial segregation, press censorship and forced labour in defence of U.S. economic interests. A good period miniature.
