Sh?h Pahlav? facing left within a decorative border of stylized tulips; the reverse with the the cylinder of Cyrus II centrally, an inscription and date above in Farsi describing the occasion, inscribed below 1971 / LE 25ME / CENTENAIRE DE LA FONDATION / DE L’EMPIRE DE L’IRAN PAR CYRUS LE GRAND / CYLINDRE DE CYRUS LE GRAND, PREMIERE DÉCLARATION DE LA LIBERTÉ DES NATIONS’ (25th Centenary of the Foundation of the Empire of Iranby Cyrus the Great Cylinder of Cyrus the Great First Declaration of the Liberty of Nations); on original ribbon with bronze Iranian crown device. The Medal was instituted for the celebrations that took place at Persepolis from 12 to 16 October 1971 to mark the 2,500th anniversary of the founding of the Persian Empire. The Great Cylinder of Cyrus the Great dates from about 539–530 BC and was adopted as a symbol by the Pahlav? Dynasty despite the fact that Rez? Sh?h Pahlav?, father of Mohammad Rez? Sh?h Pahlav?, had come to power through a military coup only in late 1925 and indeed the celebrations were an attempt to give the dynasty lineage and legitimacy.
