Medal for Long Service in the Armed Organs of Ministry of Interior


Recommended Posts

The Medaille für treue Dienste in den bewaffneten Organen des Ministeriums des Innern was instituted on January 22, 1959, originally in three classes (bronze, silver and gold): for 5, 10 and 15 years of service. It replaced the Medal for Long Service in the German People's Police (Medaille für Treue Dienste in der Deutschen Volkspolizei), instituted on April 28, 1955 in two classes, bronze and silver: for 5 and 10 years of service. On August 28, 1964 three new classes were added: for 20, 25 and 30 years of service respectively. In 1970 the obverse of the three lower classes was changed to contain GDR's coat of arms; the ribbon, originally mid-green, was altered to slightly lighter apple green.
