Product Information
Specification
FRANCE: Bronze Medal for the French Families.
In its box of issue. 
Obverse: A mother and child circumscribed 
"FAMILLE FRANÇAISE" (French Family), 
signed by Leon Deschamps.
Reverse:  "LA PATRIE RECONNAISSANT" 
(The country recognizes), circumscribed 
"REPUBLIQUE FRANCAISE MINISTERE DE 
L’HYGIENE" (French Republic, Ministry of 
Hygiene), signed by Leon Deschamps Fecit.
The medal was instituted in 1920 as a measure 
to encourage women in raising numerous 
children given that France had suffered severe 
losses in the Great War that had ended just 2 
years ago. 
The bronze medal was awarded to mothers of 
5 children. 
This is a rare early example of the medal that 
was ordered by the Ministry of Hygiene - later 
issues were awarded by the "Ministère de la 
Santé Publique" (Ministry of Public Health) 
and bare the respective inscription, instead 
of "Ministère de l’Hygiene".
Note that this is a transitional set where the 
medal has the old inscription but the lid of 
the box has the inscription of the Ministry 
of Public Health.
