BRAZIL MEDAL OF MERITO LEGISLATIVO


Recommended Posts

Hello Gentlemen,

In 1983 the Republic of Brazil had created a new medal, the Medal do Merito Legislativo ( Medal of Legislative Merit ). Since 1983 the shape of this medal has evolved from a breast medal, to a similar (but much larger) neck medal, and finally to a nowdays neck medal, but larger, and with a collar ribbon, with a large rosette on the neck ribbon.

The 1st Type Medal was 35 Millimeters in diameter, and made of gilt metal. The ribbon which is 35 Millimeters width, is equal width green/yellow. The manufacturer is : H.Stern (from Brazil).

On its obverse side the building of the National Congress in Brasilia, with the words "CONGRESSO NACIONAL BRASIL"

On its reverse a view of the inside of the National Congress, with the words "CAMARA DOS DIPUTADOS - MERITO LEGISLATIVO"

Regards to all.

The Medal of Merito Legislativo has seen its first evolution (from a small breast medal to a larger neck medal ), somewhen around 2012/2013

And the award to Brazilian Minister Paulo Bernardo, in 2012.

Regards to all.

A few years later, it appears that the Medal of Legislative Merit saw another evolution, to become a more elaborated neck medal (with what seems to be an enameled rim near the edge).

The neck ribbon is now in a shape of a collar, with a larger rosette on one of its side.

If anyone on this forum got better photo, he's most welcome to post any relevant information.

Best regards to all.
