History


The Silver Medal was founded by Prince Adolf Georg of Schaumburg-Lippe and Prince Paul Friedrich Emil Leopold of Lippe in 1869, and was conferred upon individuals who rendered meritorious services to Princely House.

In 1890, the joint House Order of Lippe, which had been founded by representatives of the Lippe-Detmold and the Lippe-Schaumburg lines, was separated, and the Silver Medal was re-designed to fit in with the newly established Princely House Order of Schaumburg-Lippe.

The Type III medals do not feature a surmounting crown.
