History


The Order was established at the behest of King Max I Joseph to award citizens of all social classes for exceptional civil merit.

The Gold and Silver Medals for Civil Merit were added as the IV class of the Order and they were conferred upon persons in office, who rendered themselves worthy of the Order, but did not possess the rank of real Collegial Counsellors.

The inscription may read "KOENIG" or "KÖNIG."

There are numerous models of this Medal; some are stamped with, "LOSCH" or "LOSCH F.," others are not. This may result in price variation.
