The Medal of the Crown of King Zvonimir (Croatian: Kolajna krune kralja Zvonimira) was founded as a "visible sign of decoration for merits done, in peace or in war, for Croatian people and Independent State of Croatia."

The Medal of the Crown of King Zvonimir had three grades: silver, bronze and iron. The medal was created by Croatian sculptor Ivo Kerdić.

It was named for King Demetrius Zvonimir, a Croatian king.
