Estimated market value:
The Order of St. Sylvester is awarded by the Pope to Catholics who are actively involved in the everyday activities of the church. It is also conferred upon individuals who have rendered professional and civil service in the realm of art, science, and literature that have benefited the church. The modern Order may also be awarded to non-Catholic recipients and women.
The Order is composed of four grades: Grand Cross with Grand Cross Breast Star, Grand Officer with Grand Officer Breast Star, Commander, and Knight.
Recipients are bestowed with a prefix after being emitted into the Order, with Knight for men and Dame for women.
See Order of the Golden Militia VAT101 in the Orders of the Vatican for more information.
