Circular bronze medal with laterally-pierced ball for ribbon suspension; the face with a hand holding an upright sword with olive leaves entwined, parting clouds to either side, a radiant sun above; the reverse with the Middle (State) version of the coat of arms of the Netherlands; on original ribbon mounted for wear in the Dutch style by Firma van Wierlik of The Hague; with corresponding ribbon bar mounted for wear.

The Medal was instituted on 23 March 2001 to be awarded to Netherlands military and civilians, or to foreigners under Dutch command, for participation in peacekeeping operations which are defined as ‘inzet of ter beschikking stellen van de krijgsmacht als bedoeld in artikel 100, eerste lid, van de Grondwet, ter handhaving of bevordering van de vrede’ (deployment or disposal of the armed forces referred to in Article 100, first paragraph, of the Constitution, to maintain or promote peace).

The award criteria require least 30 consecutive days in a peacekeeping operation and ‘in alle opzichten een goede plichtsbetrachting en een goed gedrag hebben betoond’ (to have shown a good sense of duty and good behaviour in all respects).

The SFOR bar was instituted in 2001 for participation in the Stabilisation Force operating in Bosnia and Herzegovina between 12 December 1996 and 2 December 2004.

The Dutch forces were deployed in the Banja Luca area in the northwest of Bosnia, together with British, Canadian and Czech troops.  The numbers involved were relatively small and the Medal is not often found.
