Gold-edged red enamel Maltese cross with gold rays between the arms, on oval green enamel laurel wreath suspension and ribbed suspension ring with gold hallmark; the face with a circular central medallion with the Pillars of Hercules and a crowned sphere within a white enamel ring inscribed ‘A LA LEALDAD ACRISOLADA’ (For irreproachable loyalty); the reverse with a circular central pale blue enamel bearing the gilt crowned cipher of King Fernando VII within a white enamel ring inscribed ‘POR ISABBL [sic] LA CATOLICA’ (For Isabella the Catholic); height excluding suspension ring 28.94mm (1.14 inches), width 17.42mm (0.69 inch); on original ribbon. The Order was created for King Fernando VII on 24 March 1815 to reward those defending Spanish possessions in the Americas against frequent insurrections and to recognise loyalty, zeal, patriotism and bravery on behalf of the Crown in remote lands. It was named for St. Isabella (1451-1504), Queen of Castile and wife of Ferdinand of Aragon, during whose reign America was discovered by Christopher Columbus. The Order continues to be awarded and there are many variants in existence. A very good example.
