National Order of Mali, Grand Cross Breast Star
Estimated market value:
The National Order of Mali is conferred upon Malian citizens for meritorious military, civil, or professional service of at least 10 years. It may also be awarded to foreigners, but only under exceptional circumstances. The President of the Republic of Mali is the Grand Master of the Order.
All recipients are admitted to the Order as Knights, and promotion to a higher grade may only be made after 5 years in the lower grade.
The Grand Cross Breast Star is awarded to the Grand Master, but may also be extended to foreign heads of state. The obverse inscription translates to “National Order,” and the initials stand for “République du Mali" (Republic of Mali).
