The Medal of Valour (Pingat Keberanian)


The Medal of Valour was instituted in 1987.
The Medal may be awarded to any person who has performed an act of courage and gallantry in circumstances of personal danger.
The Medal is silver-gilt and consists of a eight-pointed star upon a sixteen-sided base. The obverse side bears a central disc supporting 2 crossed swords and a shield bearing a crescent and 5 stars. Below the disc is a scroll with the inscription "PINGAT KEBERANIAN". The reverse side of the Medal bears the State Arms.
The Medal is to be worn on the left side of the outer garment suspended by a ribbon. The ribbon is white with a red edging, a purple centre band and a purple stripe to each side of the band.
