Dear All,

Until I obtained this I was unaware as to its existence. From the overall "greeness" of the design and ribbon I would assume it dates from the post 1979 period and the Colonel's Libyan Arab Socialist Peoples Jamahariya. At the bottom of the medal is the green map of the Arab world which echoes the design of the Order of the Great Conqueror. The medal weighs 53.5gms and is 62.3mm in diameter. The reverse bears the mark "STERLING SILVER - an award of British manufacture (?). The central design appears to be of eight hands facing inwards.

Regards,

Owain.
