Product Information
Specification
FRANCE: Medal for military merit "Valor and 
Discipline" (or simply "Military Medal" in 
French). 
This is the 9th version of the medal with the 
coat of arms being attached on the medallion 
with loop and ring (instead of a hinge used 
at the common WW1 type) and 3 stars on
the obverse instead of the year "1870". 
This is the Colonial Wars era variation of the 
medal, as issued by the 5th French Republic
since 1961.
The Military Medal was created by Emperor 
Louis Napoleon in 1852 to be awarded 
specifically to non-commissioned officers 
(NCOs) and soldiers for completion of 8 years 
of military service, for bravery in front of the 
enemy as well as for acts of courage and 
devotion to duty. 
The Military Medal ranks 3rd among the 
Decorations and Orders of the French Republic, 
being inferior only to the Order of the National 
Legion of Honor, and to the Order of the 
Liberation. 
There are 9 main versions and nearly 30 
variations of the medal.
