Tania Freiin von Uslar-Gleichen, German Deputy Ambassador and the legendary Pistrucci medal. Benedetto Pistrucci, a renowned engraver of the time, produced the design but its size and intricacy meant it took 30 years to create the dies, by which time all the proposed recipients were dead. The medal has now been struck in pure silver and at full size.
