Medal Of The 14th Day Of Ramadan Revolution.

Nut Thurath 14 Ramadan / Medal for the 14 Ramadan Revolution, 1963

Issued to commemorate the revolution of 14 Ramadan 1380 or 8 February 1963, which overthrew General Abd al-Karim Qasim (who had seized power in the 1958 coup. The general was killed and a new government, representing an uneasy alliance of the military and the Ba’ath Party emerged under the leadership of Ali Salih al-Saadi, Colonel Abd al-Salam Afif, and Brigadier Ahmad Hasan al-Bakr. By November of 1963, the Ba’ath Party would be maneuvered out of the coalition.

Established: Law No. 6 of 1964. Manufactured by Huguenin (Le Loche, Switzerland). There is also an Iraqi-made variety of the medal.

Obverse: Circular 40-mm bronze-gilt medal with the background enameled blue, in the center the enameled flag of Iraq (1958-91) with the inscription “Al-Jamhuriya al-Irraquiya” or “The Iraqi Republic” above and, below,“14 Ramadan”. Behind, a rising sun design. Suspended by a ring.

Reverse: Basically plain, with the legend in very high relief“8 Shibat 1963 [C.E.]” or “8 February 1963” at the botton edge. At the very bottom, the maker’s mark: “HUGUENIN SWISS MADE”.

Ribbon: 32 mm, three stripes, red / white / black, with the central white stripe twice as wide as the other two; 8 mm red, 16 mm white, 8 mm black.
