History


This is the oldest Order of the Soviet Union. Existing first as an Order of the Russian Federation (established on September 16, 1918), it was converted into an Order of the USSR on August 1, 1924. The statute was not established until January 11, 1932. It was discontinued in 1991.

It was conferred for self-sacrifice, courage, and bravery in defending Russia. It was awarded to Army, Navy, Border Guard, and Internal Security personnel, as well as KGB employees and military ships. It may also be bestowed upon foreigners.

There have been roughly 20,000 of this medal type manufactured. There is no mint mark on the Order. There are two variations of this Order, where the first 200 hundred medals were manufactured with a flat space at the bottom of the reverse and the serial number engraved on the top left. The second variation with serial numbers at the bottom of the reverse.

The obverse Russian inscription translates to: "Proletarians of the World, Unite!".
