History


This medal was founded by King Wilhelm I as a commemoration medal and was awarded to members of the coronation procession, attendees of the coronation, and military personnel that served at the coronation.

It could also be awarded to individuals who were officially in Koenigsberg on the day of the coronation. The decoration was non-returnable. The stamp was cut by Friedrich William Kullrich, who became the court medalist in 1864.

In 1908, there were 33 living recipients, 15 of which were ranked in the military between Lieutenant Colonel to general. The medal was first awarded in 1862. There are also approximately 40 non wearable, 18k Gold medals that were awarded to princes.
