The Baden Silver Medal of Merit can trace its origins as far back as 1769 when Grand Duke Karl-Friedrich instituted a large and small Silver Medal of Merit. The version showing Grand Duke Friedrich II was issued from the year after his accession in 1907 until his abdication at the end of World War I in 1918. After 1916, with increasing shortages of material, the medal was produced in zinc alloy. This example dates from the period 1908 to 1916.
