History


The Decoration for Art and Science was originally founded as the Medal for Civil Merit, which was primarily awarded to artists. The medal was established in three grades: Gold, Silver, and Bronze. Both wearable and non-wearable medals were issued.

In 1837, the Gold and Silver Medals for Civil Merit became the Gold and Silver Medals for Art and Science. Initially, the design of the medals remained the same, but the size was reduced. In July of 1858, Professor Ferdinand Helfricht produced a new stamp with a different eyelet and suspension ring.
