KYRGYZSTAN MEDAL OF DISTINGUISHED MILITARY MERIT

Recommended Posts

Hello Gentlemen,

I recently bought this nice medal from Kyrgyzstan.

The medal is 43 millimeters of diameter, tick of 5 millimeters. It's 2 parts construction. The center is a separate parts from the medal itselfs.

My "kyrgyz" skills is not great.

I got help from friends,

The reverse "shall" read : Ministry of Defense from the Kyrgyz Republic & the obverse shall be read : "For Military Merits"

But is it an early version, issued during the very first years of Indepedence ( Post 1991 ) ? I mean the book on Kyrgyz Medal i own refer o this medal, but states, that is is a variety, among various variety that have been obvserved.

I will post the page of the book later

If any one is from Kyrgyzstan,,or has been in contact with Kyrgyz military, help would be appreciated.

Regards.

Thank you Nickstrenk.

I was refering to this very usefull book on Kyrgyz award.

In this book, there is photo from the 2 classes of the Medal for Excellence in Military Service (with what seems green enamel on center). But on the next page, that book refer to the medal I own, mentioning the word in ( ), which (and again sorry I do not have a cyrillic keyboard : PA3HOB ID HOCTb , which had been refered to be : one of the variation ). Again sorry, I do not have the keyboard to write letter I & D in cyrillic.

Regards.

Emmanuel,I did not read properly.You meant a Ministerium award but I meant the State one.

Yes,there were 2 versions of the Ministerium award,they differed with the title in the reverse.

Again I had a look in Wikipedia.The Medal for Excellence in Military Service.There were 4 versions.Except of the medals you showed there were versions 2002 and version from 2005.But I do not have picture of the last one.
