    Honorary Medal of the Soviet Peace Fund, #14521, with a document; awarded to Vanna Klevakina on 23 January 1991.

    Honorary Medal of the Soviet Peace Fund, #14521, with a document; awarded to Vanna Klevakina on 23 January 1991.

    In German silver; 29.3 mm wide. Shows engraved serial number 14521 in specially provided space on the reverse. Both the reverse of the medal and the suspension device have raised mint mark "LMD" of the Leningrad Mint.

    The document is a 8 cm x 11.5 cm booklet showing the serial number of the medal on the front cover. The interior pages have depiction of the medal, ink stamp and signatures of two top officials in the organization. The citation is "for active participation in the work of the Fund". Note the very late issue date indicating that this is one of the last medals awarded prior to the collapse of the USSR in December 1991.

    The Soviet Peace Fund was one of the international branches of the Communist Party, aiming to undermine western weapon developments and military deployments. The organization funded numerous "peace seeking" movements and protests in the US and Western Europe. In the last decade of its existence, most working Soviet citizens had to make "voluntary" monthly contributions to its coffers. The Honorary Medal was the highest decoration of the organization awarded to the high-ranking functionaries, both in the USSR and abroad.
