Cambodia Post 1994

Following the takeover of the country by the bloody-rule of the communist Khmer Rouge, a constitutional monarchy was restored under United Nations sponsored elections in 1993. This government was strengthened in 1998 by the formation of a coalition. The new Kingdom has again begun to issue medals. The following medals, altered in some cases and added in others, are currently being issued:
