From what I can tell this was engraved by Lea Alhborn which is the name at the base of the neck. Not a military medal. From what I have researched it may have belonged to one of these people? and maybe an Illis Quorum medal?:
1848 – Rafael Ginard i Sabater
1873 – Sophia Wilkens
1883 – Lea Ahlborn
1890 – Karin Åhlin
1895 – Sophie Adlersparre, Emmy Rappe
1896 – Hilda Caselli
If it’s not an Illis Quorum then what? I found silver medals online that were very similar to this but none in gold.
Medal is for the Royal Patriotic Society, a semi-official civilian society under the patronage of the king. Technically not a royal order or medal and the award is designed to reward activities and pursuits of a private nature that are of benefit to the country. These are minted in gold and silver, some are named.
