Miniature circular silvered bronze medal with laurel leaf ribbon suspension bar; the face with a laurel-crowned female head facing left, circumscribed ‘REPUBLIQUE FRANÇAISE’; the reverse inscribed ‘FONDÉ EN 1892’ within a circular laurel wreath circumscribed ‘GRAND PRIX HUMANITAIRE DE FRANCE ET DES COLONIES’; diameter 13.75mm (0.54 inch); on original ribbon. The prize was created in 1892 to recognise and reward humanitarian acts and is still awarded, though the reference to the Colonies has disappeared. A good early example.
