History


This Medal is conferred upon individuals who have rendered long service to the same employer or rendered long service to a family.

The obverse design of the medal consists of the portrait of the reining monarch, and in Swedish around his head, his name and title; because of this there is many variations of this medal.

The reverse design of the medal is very similar to the Royal Pro Patria Medal for Civic Merit although the two medals vary in inscription that is encircled by a laurel wreath.

When conferred upon women, this Medal is worn on a bow ribbon.

The 2nd Size Silver Medal is conferred upon individuals who have rendered at least 15 years of service.
