Kuwait, Gulf War Liberation of Kuwait Medal

The Kuwait Liberation Medal was created in 1991 and was issued by the government of Kuwait to both local and foreign military personnel who served in the “Liberation of Kuwait in the Persian Gulf War. The medals on offer here are the 5th class, struck in bronze with coloured enamel measuring 40mm in diameter suspended from a bar by a wreath. The design of the medal features the traditional dhow within a wreath supported by a falcon with its wings spread, falconry being the sport of kings in the Persian Gulf, and superimposed onto the falcon is an enamelled coat of arms, mirroring the ribbon on the medal in the colours of the State of Kuwait. At the top of the medal is the inscription in Arabic translating as “1991 Liberation Medal”. The reverse side of the medal shows a map of Kuwait on a rayed background. The medals are in their original boxes of issue complete with the dress ribbon bar.
