Here is a link to the official coronation web site.

A new Order had been instituted and a series of 3 Medals (bronze, silver & gold ) for merit to the State of Johor, that do not requires the award of an Order.

All who lives or have lived in Malaysia, or are interested in Malaysia ODM knows that Johor awards its Order & Medals much more sparingly than others States of the Federation of Malaysia.
