The Medal of the City of Paris (French: Médaille de la Ville de Paris) is a distinction created in 1911 and awarded by the mayor of Paris on the proposal of elected members of the Paris Council or associations. There are several levels: bronze, silver, large silver and vermeil.

It rewards people who have achieved a "remarkable act concerning the capital" but is also awarded systematically to centenary Parisians and couples celebrating their golden wedding (50 years), diamond (60 years), platinum (70 years) , alabaster (75) or oak (80).[1]
