Medal for the Lower Austria Mobilisation, large silver medal (Medaille des Niederösterreichischen Mobilisierungsaufgebots, große Silbermedaille), 1797
Large circular silver medal with integral lateral ring for ribbon suspension; the face with the laurel-crowned head of Emperor Franz II facing right, circumscribed ‘FRANZ II • ROM • KAI • ERZHERZOG ZU OESTERREICH’ (Francis II, Holy Roman Emperor, Archduke of Austria), signed ‘I. N. WIRT. F’ (for the great Viennese medallist to the Imperial Court and Chief Engraver at the Vienna Mint, Johann Nepomuk Wirt, 1750-1811); the reverse inscribed ‘DEN / BIEDEREN / SOEHNEN / OESTERREICHS / DES / LANDESVATERS / DANK / MDCCXCVII’ (The leaders of the country thank the loyal sons of Austria, 1797) within a wreath of oak; diameter 38.94mm (1.53 inches); on replaced correct ribbon with red leatherette backing. The Medal was instituted by Emperor Franz II on 7 September 1797 to be awarded to those who mobilised at the request of Count Saurau, President of the Administration of Lower Austria, and formed the Landesstande in defence of Vienna in the face of the advance of French Napoleonic forces in the Spring of 1797. In the event, the mobilisation was overtaken by an armistice, the Emperor of Austria seeking to avoid bloodshed, that led to the Treaty of Campo Formio being signed on 18 October 1797 with significant territorial gains, mainly in Italy, for both the French and the Austrians.
