The decoration was created by a decree of May 26, 1920, under the name Médaille d’honneur de la famille française (Medal of Honour of the French Family) with the aim of honouring mothers of large families and also to encourage French Families to increase the French population after WW1. The Gold award was given to Mothers who had 8 children or more. Bronze and Silver awards also existed.

A very interesting medal in beautiful condition.
