Medal for Civil Merit (in Gold)
Estimated market value:
The Medal for Civil Merit was established by the decision of Pieter Mijer, Governor-General of the Dutch East Indies, as a continuation of the award tradition in the Dutch East Indies. It was permanently suppressed on August 29, 1893, when it was replaced by the Star for Loyalty and Merit.
It was awarded to native citizens for a variety of meritorious services. The reverse inscription translates to "The Dutch (East) Indian Government to [Recipient Details]."
In some instances, the Gold Medal could be awarded on a gold neck chain like the traditional awards.
