Medal Of The 14th July Revolution.

Nut Thurath 17 Tamuz / Medal for the 14 July Revolution, 1958

To commemorate the 14 July 1958 revolution in which the monarchy was overthrown by the “Free Officers” of the Iraqi army. The royal family and many of their supporters were executed, and all power was placed in a revolutionary council under the leadership of Brigadier Abd al-Karim Qasim and Colonel Abd al-Salaam Arif. In 1963, Brigadier Qasim would be removed by the army and the small Iraqi Ba’ath Party.

Established: Law No. 5 of 1964. Made by Huguenin (Le Loche, Switzerland).

Obverse: Triangular bronze-gilt, 41 mm, in the center a green-enameled map of Iraq with a palm tree and two oil wells issuing from it. Over all, the Iraqi national symbol. Below, the Arabic inscription “14 Hatul” or “14 July”. Suspended by an integral horizontal loop.

Reverse: The Arabic inscription “Tanu 14 Namur 1958 [C.E.]” or “Revolution 14 July 1958”. The maker’s mark is on the upper suspension edge.

Ribbon: 35 mm, yellow (orange?) with (reading inward) 2 mm black and 4 mm blue edge stripes; 2 mm black, 4 mm blue, 23 mm yellow, 4 mm blue, 2 mm black.
