"Maternal Gratitude To Artsah's Courageous Sons" Commemorative Medal.

Here is the "Maternal Gratitude To Artsah's Courageous Sons" Commemorative Medal («Մայրական Երախտագիտություն Արցախի Գաջորդիներին» Հուշամեդալ). Given the Russian name Медаль «Материнская Благодарность И Признание Храбрым Бойцам Арцаха» (Medal "Material Gratitude And Recognition Of The Brave Fighters Of Artsah").

This was the very first award of the NKR, founded on 25th August 1992. Although it is not a state award but an award of the Nagorno-Karabakh Fund "Motherhood Of Artsah" it is held in extremely high regard by the population of the NKR. Although this is an organisational award the Medal is often handed to recipients not by members of the fund but by Ministers or even the President.

To date c5,000 have been awarded "for Artsah Liberation War participation or to social and political leaders and philanthropists for services in defending the nation".

The Medal is made from melted down bullets fired at the NKR by Azeri forces.
