Orden Takovskog Krsta. Instituted in 1865. In bronze gilt, cypher of Mihailo Obrenović III on the obverse, measuring 34.5 mm (w) x 45.3 mm (h) inclusive of its laterally-pierced ball suspension, on a replacement incorrect triangular ribbon with hook and eye, extremely fine.

The decree that established the Cross and Silver Medal was signed on May 22, 1865 by Mihailo Obrenović III, Prince of Serbia. The Order was suppressed in 1903.
