History


The Medal for Merit in Corso (Distinción de Mérito en el Corso) was authorised by the Crown of Spain in 1810. It was conferred upon the Captain of the Spanish naval ship "San Rafael" for the battle against a French Pirate in Baracoa, Cuba at the same year.

Probably, this Medal continued to be awarded for a while in recognition of meritorious and distinguished acts within Navy service; presumably, the Medal was granted in Gold, Silver, and Bronze grades. This information is not confirmed.

The Medal features an obverse inscription that translates to "To Merit."
