18k gold Swedish medal for “Zealous and Devoted Service of the Realm”

Perhaps you have devoted yourself zealously to some type of service? If so, you may wish to honor yourself with a gold medal!

An 18k gold medal from the Swedish state awarded for “Zealous and Devoted Service of the Realm”. The first known awarding took place in 1830.

One side of this gold medal has a portrait in relief of King Gustaf in profile, the reverse side with text. A royal crown of solid gold sits atop the medal.

The Swedish government has a tradition of awarding medals for a variety of achievements for instance: Courage, Civic Virtue, Wounded in Battle, and my favorite, Diligent Reindeer Husbandry.

This medal would have been awarded to someone after 30 years of public service. Typically it would have been mounted to a ribbon, in the formal military style, but this one has been converted to a pendant for daily wear. I love that it didn’t just collect dust in a case all these years - it’s been worn to a wonderful soft patina and has lots of life left.

Interior key ring

Each Wedge Bag is made with an interior key ring that is perfect to clip your keys so that you never lose them again.

Also works great with one of my leather leashes to connect a zipper pouch or anything else you like to keep at hand.
