Sizes of the Thai Order of the Crown, & Order of the White Elephant?

Recommended Posts

Hi again everyone!

Can anyone tell me what the official size of the medals for 3rd., 4th., & 5th. classes of the Order of the Crown, & Order of the White Elephant should be? I know that 4th. & 5th. are identical except for the addition of the rosette to the 4th., and the 3rd. is on a neck ribbon, and a little larger in diameter, but what other difference in diameter (or anything else) are there...if any?

Thanks again!

Jason

My example of the Crown 3rd Class appears to be just 50 mm, horizontal point to point. Don't have 4th or 5th.

Only have Special Cordon of White Elephant, so no help there.

Jason,

There is some variation, but some quick spot measurement I have are :

Order of the Crown:

3rd class - male: 55mm

3rd class - female: 39-41mm

4th/5th class - both male & female: 30-33mm (this is the same badge for these classes)

Order of the White Elephant:

3rd class - male: 48-49mm

3rd class - female: 44-46mm

4th/5th class - both male & female: 33-36mm (this is the same badge for these classes)
