History


The Life Saving Medal was originally instituted on April 1, 1882, by Duke Ernst I and it was conferred upon individuals who risked their lives in order to save others from peril.

The Type II Silver Medals were introduced in 1908 by Duke Ernst II. The medals were altered to feature the portrait of Duke Ernst II, but the award criteria remained the same.
