The Zimbabwean honours system was instituted in late 1980 to replace the Rhodesian honours system. The first award that was instituted was the Independence Medal, which was awarded to those who were involved in the Zimbabwean independence commemorations in some way. The Zimbabwean honours system includes a range of orders, gallantry decorations, gallantry medals, and service medals.[1]
