The Emperor Haile Selassie I & Empress Menen Celebration Medal has been authorised for bestowal, during the interregnum, by the President of the Crown Council (and in normal times by the Emperor) on any individual who has helped to maintain the legacy of Their late Imperial Majesties.
It is a re-issue of the Silver Jubilee Medal (1955) bearing the Emperor’s and Empress’s joint portraits with the Jubilee Palace depicted on the reverse. The Medal is executed in sterling silver, and is made in Paris by Arthus-Bertrand. The riband is dark violet moiré. The Award carries no post-nominal initials.
