The Gold Lifesaving Medal is a U.S. decoration issued by the United States Coast Guard.
The award was first established by Act of Congress, 20 June 1874; later authorized by 14 U.S.C. § 500. The decoration is of the oldest medals in the United States and was originally established at the Department of Treasury as a Lifesaving Medal First and Class. The Department of the Treasury initially gave the award, but today the United States Coast Guard awards it through the Department of Homeland Security. They are not classified as military decorations, and may be awarded to any person.
