Detailed description

L’Ordre est créé le 7 mai 1765 par le roi Stanislas Auguste Poniatowski en l’honneur du saint patron de la Pologne pour obtenir un soutien politique parmi les seigneurs du royaume. En 1772, la Pologne est partagée et l’Ordre est aboli. En 1807, le duché de Varsovie est créé lors de la paix de Tilsit par Napoléon et le roi Frédéric-Auguste Ier de Saxe, allié de l'empereur et nouveau duc de Varsovie, rétablit l’ordre de Saint-Stanislas.

En 1815, à la suite de la défaite de Napoléon, le congrès de Vienne décide le partage de l’ancien allié français. La Pologne est en grande partie annexée par la Russie impériale. L’Ordre est alors conservé par le tsar Alexandre Ier, puis réorganisé et devient officiellement, en 1831, un ordre impérial et royal russe sous le règne de Nicolas Ier à la suite de l’Insurrection de Novembre.

Il est généralement admis que l’ordre de Saint-Stanislas serait l’ancêtre de l’actuel ordre de la Polonia Restituta, créé en 1921. Depuis un ukase de 1839, l’Ordre est destiné à gratifier des personnes ayant rendu des services exceptionnels pour la prospérité impériale et, dans certains cas, pour récompenser des officiers. Décerné pour récompenser les mérites personnels tant civils que militaires, il occupait la sixième place dans la hiérarchie des ordres russes et a été très largement attribué.

Cet Ordre venait après l’ordre de Sainte-Anne. De nombreux ingénieurs et techniciens français l’ont reçu à l’issue de missions d'assistance scientifique et technique effectuées en Russie. L’ordre de Saint-Stanislas comportait trois classes : la première classe représentée par un grand cordon avec une croix de 60 mm et une plaque d’argent à huit grands rayons, la seconde classe identique avec une croix de 45 mm, la troisième classe avec une croix de 37 mm.

Silver can fall into your pocket but also falls between copper and gold in group 11 of the periodic table. Three metals frequently used to mint coins. There are two good reasons for using silver: it is a precious metal and oxidizes little upon contact with air. Two advantages not to be taken for granted.

Here is thus a metal that won’t vanish into thin air.

It’s chemical symbol Ag is derived from the Latin word for silver (argentum), compare Ancient Greek ἄργυρος (árgyros). Silver has a white, shiny appearance and, to add a little bit of esotericism or polytheism to the mix, is traditionally dedicated to the Moon or the goddess Artemis (Diana to the Romans).

As a precious metal, just like gold, silver is used to mint coins with an intrinsic value, meaning their value is constituted by the material of which they are made. It should be noted that small quantities of other metals are frequently added to silver to make it harder, as it is naturally very malleable (you can’t have everything) and thus wears away rapidly.

The first silver coins probably date back to the end of the 7th century BC and were struck on the Greek island of Aegina. These little beauties can be recognized by the turtle featured on the reverse.

The patina of silver ranges from gray to black.

Good to know:

The millesimal fineness (or alloy) of a coin indicates the exact proportion (in parts per thousand) of silver included in the composition. We thus speak, for example, of 999‰ silver or 999 parts of silver per 1 part of other metals. This measure is important for investment coins such as bullion. In France, it was expressed in carats until 1995.
