1953 Geneva European Cultural Centre Gold Medal
1953 (MCMLII), Swiss gold medal, European Cultural Centre Geneva (CENTRE EUROPEEN DE LA CULTURE GENEVE), Maria Theresia.

An Intriguing Medal
Normally, we can work out what most medals and medallions were issued for, they are often self explanatory. This one leaves us slightly puzzled. Let's start with what we do know:-

Maria Theresia, as on a 1780 Maria Theresia Thaler, the legend reads, from the top:
Probably made by Huguenin Freres of Le Locle Switzerland.

A three-tongued flame atop the inscription:
GR. 29.03 OR FIN

What We Don't Know

There is probably more we do not know about this medal than we do know, but it remains an interesting historical piece.
There are a few light scratches on the obverse, together with a few greasy fingerprints, otherwise it is about uncirculated condition, and prooflike.
