Hello Mr Medal, here is a Melakka D.P.S.M. set (from Chencellery web site).

Melakka Orders & Meals (Malacca in english) are seldom to be found in Malaysia.

The Ordre of Sultan Ismael was created in 1974. So I have never seen one in Malaysia.

When it was created it was awarded in 2 classes : 1st class S.S.I.J. (it's a sash badge star shaped with 9 points and a breast star with 9 points + Collar).I was able to recently purchased such a set (picture below).The hallmarks are for Birminghams in 1979. The 2nd class D.S.I.J. was a sash badge 7 points and a breast star with 7 points.

I have purchased from that seller another decoration that seems to be linked to Order of Sultan Ismael, but it seems there is no 3rd class yet. By the way it seems a Bintang Sultan Ismael exist (a breast badge). Taz had posted a picture of it some years ago.

For those of you who are intrested, The Installation Medal Ribbon of the 14th King of Malaysia (The Sultan of Kedah) on 11th April, 2012 is golden-yellow with 4x2mm edge stripes of blue/red/white/dark-green. The width of the ribbon is not known, but could be approx. 33mm.

Regards the S.S.I.J. (Darjah Sultan Ismail Johor Yang Amat Di-Bakti - The Most Blessed Order of Loyalty to Sultan Ismail of Johore, 1st Class, -photo above), I have a drawing of it in a Government publication, (together with the D.K. (Darjah Kerabat Yang Amat DiHormati - The Most Esteemed Royal Family Order) and the S.P.M.J. (Darjah Mahkota Johor Yang Amat Mulia - The Most Honourable Order of the Crown of Johore).

The new Sultan of Johore (D.Y.M.M. Sultan Tunku Ibrahim Ismail, D.K., D.K. (Pahang), D.K. (N.S.), D.K. (Terengganu), S.P.M.J., S.S.I.J., S.P.D.K., S.M.N., S.P.M.T., S.P.M.K., P.I.S.) is mostly shown wearing the S.S.I.J.

If anyone is intrested I have a complete list of Federal Malaysia & Malaysian States Orders, in Malay & English with their Ribbons.

The Insignia can be seen on the Royal Ark website of Christopher Buyers.

Hello Gentlemen, it had taken long long time before I could get one set of this Order of Kelantan, Most Valiant Order of the Noble Crown of Kelantan in Knight Commander rank D.P.K.K.). With its case....

Chritopher Buyers do a fantastic job, and I have send him several photo over the years, but some high ranking Malaysian Order are hard to get.

I do not own a Kelantan S.P.K.K. set , but I own a J.M.K. , unfortunately without ribbon.

If anyone could help (the shop Malaya Trading in KL doesn't has that ribbon), and I know the State of Kelantan directly orders his ribbon and sashes from Toye Kennings, but Toye Kennings seems to be deaf to my request.

As I said I do not own a S.P.K.K. set, but in 2005 I was allowed to take a photo of a set.

It's not as good as it could be expected with a digital camera, but it's better than nothing.

The main difference on the badges (here it's a collar badge on SPKK) , with sash badge of DPKK is that there is green leaf between the arms of the SPKK badge.

Hello JDM,

It's nice to make post, but it would be better if you add pictures ?

Ok I will list some recent, and not so oftenly seen Malaysian States Installation & Jubilee Medal

Let's begin by Kedah, the Silver Jubilee (in real silver) and the Gold Jubilee 2008 (in gilded metal, but striking well made for a modern piece).

The Silver Jubilee of 1983 retain the same ribbon used for the Installation Medal in 1959 (he succeded the throne in 1958, but ceremony of installation took place in 1959)

Installation Medal of Sultan Ismail Petra 1980

This is the Negeri Sembilan Installation Medal of 2009 of Tuanku Muhriz.

It's the lowest ranking one (bronze striking), but I saw it silver....so i guess for Royal Guest it may also have been struck in gilt, or real gold.

Perlis is the smallest State of the Federation of Malaysia, but also got its Installation & Jubilee Medal.

The first (with yellow & 2 wide dark green stripes in center) is Golden Jubilee Medal of Tuanku Syed Putra Jamalullail in 1995

The 2nd (with yellow ribbon with tiny central flashy green stripes & 2 very small side bleu stripes) is his son Tuanku Syed Sirajuddin Installation Medal in 2001

The 3rd one (with flashy green central stripe and bleu & yellow stripes) is 10 Years of Reign Medal in 2011.

Let's end by Johor.

From left to right :

Sultan Ibrahim Diamond Jubilee Medal 1895-1955

Sultan Ibrahim Memorial Medal (he passed away in 1959 after 64 years of reign). This is NOT an official medal, but it has its place here. Ribbon is not known (I just choose to put a bleu/white ribbon which are the Johor colours).

Sultan Ismael Installation Medal 1960

I would need the real picture of the Sultan Mahmud installation 1982 (I think the one that is oftenly shown is not the Installation Medal, but the Yang di Pertuan Agong Installation of the Sultan of Johor).

I would need also a picture of the Sultan Ibrahim Ismail Installation Medal 2010.

Best regards.

Many thanks Emmanuel, I did not know about the 2 Perlis Medals, (Syed Putra's & the 10th Anniv. of the present reign).

The other medal we have as the 12th King's Installation Medal in 2002 (so this is wrong).

Do you have any photos of the Installation Medals of the Kings of Malaysia ?

I think they began with the 4th King or 5th King?

A lot of your photos of ribbons can now be allocated to some of the unknown ribbons.

Emmanuel, thank you so much. It's very generous of you to share all this. Thanks to you, I now have a much improved data base, and have identified a couple of "strangers" in my collection.

Best,
