Medal Of Cooperation.

Nut al-Taawin / Medal of Cooperation, 1967-73

Awarded to foreign friends to reward cooperative effoprts, especially in the military sphere. It seems likely (possible?) that this medal was intended mainly for award to Syrian nationals, as this time period was a moment of significant renewal of the Iraqi-Syrian friendship. It seems also to have been awarded to other foreign friends, including Soviets.

Established: 1969. Manufactured by Hugenin (Le Loche, Switzerland).

Obverse: Massive circular 48-mm bronze medal with an eight-pointed star and surrounding wreath. Within the star, the Iraqi eagle with the enameled arms on its breast; behind its head the Haram al-Sharif (“Dome of the Rock”) in Al-Quds (Jerusalem). Suspended by an integral horizontal loop.

Reverse: Pebbled, with the Arabic legand “Nut al-T‘aauh” or “Medal of Cooperation” at the bottom. The maker’s mark is at the top, “HUGUENIN / SWISS MADE”.

Ribbon: 34 mm, green with a 16-mm red center stripe; 9 mm green, 16 mm red, 9 mm green.

-- first class – lightly guilded and with the wreath and outline of the star enameled green (shown first)
-- second class – plain bronze (shown second)
