Description

The Civil and Military Order of Merit of Adolphe of Nassau is the second highest order of merit in Luxembourg and can only be conferred by the Grand Duke himself.  The order is granted for meritorious service to the country and outstanding loyalty to the dynasty, and also rewards those who have excelled in the arts and sciences.

King Grand Duke Wilhelm II introduced the Order of the Oak Crown in 1841. It is conferred for meritorious civil and military achievement.

After World War II, there was a desire for a Luxembourg order of merit and in 1961, the Order of Merit of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg was established by Grand Duchess Charlotte. This order may be bestowed upon individuals in many fields in recognition of exceptional achievement to the benefit of others or to the common good.

As it does every year, POST Philately has issued an annual collection in 2017, which includes all the stamps issued throughout the year. The title page displays an attractive summary with a mosaic of all the designs.
