|This article does not cite any references (sources). (December 2009)|
The Medal for Outstanding Civic Service or Medaljen for Borgerdåd is the second highest ranked Norwegian medal. In spring 2004 the medal ceased to be awarded. The medal was first established by Royal Resolution April 10, 1819 and later altered by Royal Resolution April 13, 1844. It was awarded by the cabinet meeting presided over by the King after a recommendation by the Norwegian Ministry of Justice.
It is divided into two grades: the first class is in gold and the second class is in silver.
Recipients of the Medal for Outstanding Civic Achievement are ranked 2nd[dubious ] in the Norwegian order of precedence, after recipients of the War Cross with sword and before holders of the Grand Cross of the Royal Norwegian Order of St. Olav.
