History


This medal was founded by the Prince Regent Luitpold as a commemorative and merit medal.

In anticipation of his 90th birthday, the Prince Regent ordered the creation of the Medal with Crown as a senior award. The award was no longer awarded after his death in 1912, and was issued for less than two years, making it quite rare.
