One of the nicer looking medals of the Peoples' Republic of Bulgaria, this medal was given, beginning April 2nd, 1979, to Bulgarian citizens,organizations and foreigners who contributed to, or fostered good relations with, the city of Sofia. The medal pictured is the first variation; in 1982 the type on the reverse of the medal was changed, removing reference to the anniversary, allowing the medal to continue to be given for acts benefiting the city.

The medal was presented in a gold-coloured leatherette case, the top of which is shown here:

A detail of the impressed coat-of-arms. Below the crest, a banner inscribed with the motto, "growing but not ageing".

The medal resting within the case:

A detail of the obverse of the medal:

And a detail of the reverse... the inscription reads, "Sofia 100 Years Capital of Bulgaria 1879-1979".
