Miniature circular gilt bronze medal with lateral loop for ribbon suspension; the face with a crowned German eagle sweeping from left to right, a prostrate dragon in its claws, all within a laurel wreath border; the reverse with the crowned cipher of Emperor Wilhelm II with flying pendelia, circumscribed ‘DEN SIEGREICHEN STREITERN’ (The Victorious Combatants) above and ‘1900 CHINA 1901’ below, all within a laurel wreath border; diameter 15.55mm (0.61 inch); on replaced correct ribbon. The medal was instituted on 10 May 1901 in bronze for combatants and those who had tended the sick and wounded in the war zone and in steel for non-combatants and support personnel. It was awarded for those who between 30 May 1900 and 29 June 1901 were numbered amongst either the German marines and civilians who took part in the defence of the Foreign Legations in Peking (Beijing) during the two and a half months siege by the ‘Boxers’ or the German soldiers, marines and sailors who lifted the siege. The proposal of Emperor Wilhelm II for a common commemorative medal for the eight-nation alliance was rejected and each country (except Austria-Hungary) issued its own medal. The medal was designed by Professor Walter Schott of Berlin and manufactured by Mayer and Wilhelm of Stuttgart. The alliance fielded a force numbering 54,000 of whom 300 were German soldiers and 600 German marines with five German warships giving support. The small size of the German force makes this medal relatively rare, especially in miniature.
