Order of the Republic, Type I, Collar
Estimated market value:
The Order of the Republic was instituted by governmental law in 1953 in commemoration of the reestablishment of the Republic of Egypt.
The Order is conferred upon Egyptian citizens as well as foreigners in recognition of valuable services rendered to Egyptian and foreign blood princes and heads of government. Demonstrations of outstanding civil or military merit also qualify for the award of the Order.
The Order is awarded in 5 classes plus a Collar. The class is dependent on the service recognized and the recipient’s status. The Military Order of the Republic is modelled after the Order of the Republic. The Order is also believed to have 2 associated Medals: the I and II Class of the Military Medal of the Republic.
The Collar was created as a continuation of the Collar of Fouad I and is conferred by the President of Egypt upon crown princes and heads of government who render valuable public service to Egypt or elsewhere.
Egyptian recipients of the Collar are entitled to funerals with full military honours.
The Collar features an obverse Arabic inscription which translates to “Republic.”
There are multiple versions of the Collar which vary by design. Early versions feature a depiction of a lily design while later versions feature an Egyptian Eagle design. There may be additional versions which feature a hawk design, but more research is necessary.
