History


The Medal for Art and Science was originally instituted by Prince Georg Viktor as the Merit Medal (1857-1871). The Medal was conferred upon individuals who rendered exceptional service to the Princely House and contributed to the welfare of the state. On January 14, 1871, Prince Georg Viktor instituted the Order of Merit and incorporated the Medal Merit into the Order as the second class. In 1891, the medal was renamed the Gold Merit Medal.

On July 4, 1899, Prince Friedrich created a new Gold Merit Medal and the formerly awarded decoration became the Medal for Art and Science. The award was conferred in recognition of extraordinary achievements in the fields of art and science. On June 28, 1903, Prince Friedrich created the Large Medal for Art and Science. After the Large Medal for Art and Science was instituted, the Gold Medal was known as the Small Medal for Art and Science.

The Medal was awarded until 1918.
