It was established on January 21, 1906 by decree of Emperor Nicholas II. The medal had three main variants made of different metals: silver, bronze, dark bronze (copper). Medals made of different metals were awarded to different categories of awardees. The silver version was intended to reward the defenders of the Kwantung Peninsula (also Guangdong) and Port Arthur (now Liushun). All persons who participated in these military events were awarded, including even the residents of Port Arthur who participated in its defense. Medals made of dark bronze (copper) were awarded to military personnel who did not take a direct part in the battles, but who served in the active armies and were in the Far East and along the Trans-Siberian Railway and the Samara-Zlatoust Railway in areas under martial law before the day of ratification of the peace treaty. Similarly with other variants of the medal, military, sailors, border guards, militia, priests, doctors were awarded, if these persons were on duty with the troops or medical institutions.
