Estimated market value:
This Order was founded by Catherine the Great. It was at first created as a purely civilian award. It was conferred upon those who served the state for at least 35 years. In addition, it was conferred upon those who had assisted during emergencies, epidemics, or famine, and those who had saved others from danger. It could also be bestowed upon the clergy and to those who had made distinguished contributions to their professions.
The badge for 18 Campaigns was awarded to Officers in the Navy, and the badge for 25 Years was awarded to Army Officers.
