Re: Medal "Friendship"

All,

Does anyone know how often Friendship Medals were issued to Soviet military personnel? Additionally, do we know how many went to veterans of the GPW and were they awarded them on specific anniversaries. I have seen a few photos of Soviet officers who served in Mongolia during the GPW who are wearing Friendship Medals.

Thanks!

Will

Re: "Friendship" Medal.

Here is #3317. The prices have seriously dropped over the last few years and can now be picked up for under $100 any day of the week.

Re: "Friendship" Medal.

I am a big fan of this medal, due to the vivid blue enamel on the enameled suspension. I have acquired two Friendship medals in the low 100s over the past few years. Here is 0414, which was awarded to a Soviet KGB lieutenant colonel. The photo and stamp back up this claim. It was awarded in 1967, the first year of issuance for the medal.

As far as I am aware, this is the earliest and lowest-serial numbered awarding of the medal that we have observed.


Cheers,

Interestingly, I just noticed that the documented medal (#0414) I just posted was issued on the same date under the same decree as the document for #0696 that Alex posted back in 2012. An interesting coincidence.
