Medal Of The 17th July Revolution.

Nut Thurath 17 Tamuz / Medal for the 17 July Revolution, 1968

Awarded to commemorate the revolution of 17 July 1968 in which General Abd al-Rahman Arif was forced into exile and General Ahmad Hassan al-Bakr and the Ba’ath Party assumed control of the Iraqi government. This constituted the final Ba’ath consolidation of power in Iraq, a situation that would continue until the 2003 invasion.

Established: By Law No. 45 of 1968. Manufactured by Huguenin (Le Loche, Switzerland).

Obverse: A circular gilt medal, enameled black. In the center, a yellow-enameled eight-pointed star with a gilt and black-enameled wreath and the date “1968 [C.E.]” below. Within the wreath, a gilt triangle with a yellow-enameleded sunburst design with the Iraqi state emblem in red enamel. Below, the Arabic inscription “Nut / 17 Tamuz” or “Medal / 17 July”. Suspended by an integral loop.

Reverse: Patterned with a small maker’s mark toward the bottom: “HUGUENIN / SWISS MADE”.

Ribbon: 36-mm, white with 4-mm black edges: 4 mm black, 28 mm white, 4 mm black.
