History


The Medal for Art and Science was introduced on December 30, 1874 by Duke Ernst I. The medal was awarded in recognition of extraordinary achievements and exceptional service within the fields of art and science.

The medal was established in four grades, Gold Medal with Crown, Gold Medal, Silver Medal with Crown, and Silver Medal.

The medals were redesigned after Duke Ernst II ascended to the throne. The Type III medals feature his left-facing portrait.
