History


This medal was instituted by Grand Duke Wilhelm Ernst, and it was awarded to recognize extraordinary merit, faithful service, and faithful labour. The medal was conferred upon citizens of Saxe-Weimar and foreign labourers.

The medal featured different reverse inscriptions that correlated with the reason the medal was awarded, either for merit "DEM VERDIENSTE" and "DEM VERDIENSTE 1914", for faithful service "FUR TREUE DIENSTE", for faithful labour "FUR TREUE ARBEIT", or for foreigners "WE".

The medals may have featured a crossed swords clasp on the ribbon. The swords clasp was awarded to indicate merit in war.

The Gold Medal was awarded for 30 or more years of exemplary service to general officers and employees.
