    On Non-Christian version, the center medallion features a Russian Imperial eagle, instead of the Imperial mantle. The cross is similar in appearance to cross 4th class, and is the same size (35mm); except on the inscription on obverse (also often on reverse) horizontal arms of the cross, indicating "25 Years" of service.


The Order was founded by Catherine the Great. It was at first created as a purely civilian award, and conferred upon those who served the state for at 35 years. In addition, it was conferred upon those who had assisted during emergencies, epidemics, or famine, and those who had saved others from danger. It could also be bestowed upon the clergy and to those who had made distinguished contribution to their professions.

This badge could be awarded for 25 or 35 years of service.

The military division of this order features crossed swords.

There are several variations in the size and style of the badge.

The obverse features initials of the Saint.
