History


The Campaign Medal (1793-1815) was established on January 1, 1840, by King Wilhelm I. The Medal was conferred upon military personnel of all ranks who rendered exceptional service in one or more field campaigns.

In order to receive the Medal, a potential recipient must have entered the area in which a conflict took place, or had to have directly fought against the enemy.

The Medal was awarded for participation in one or more of the campaigns that took place in the following years: 1793, 1794, 1795, 1796, 1799, 1800, 1805, 1806, 1807, 1809, 1812, 1813 in Saxony, 1813-1814 in France, and 1815.

The reverse inscription includes the number of campaigns the recipient participated in, ranging from 1 to 11. The rarity and price of the medal depend on the number of campaigns denoted on the medal.

The stamp of the medal was designed by Gottlob August Dietelbach.

The first imprint of the medals featured a laurel wreath composed of 30 leaves on the obverse. The leaves are divided into groups 2 groups of 15 and they are joined together by a crisscrossed band. The second imprint of medals featured a laurel wreath composed of 20 leaves on the obverse. The leaves are divided into groups 2 groups of 10 and they are joined together by a crisscrossed band. On both medals, the wreaths surround a large letter “W’ that is surmounted by a crown. The reverse of both medals features a semi-circle shaped shield with a scalloped top. There is an inward facing lion head on each of the scalloped corners. Two crossed swords are placed behind the shield.
