The Order of the Gold Lion of the House of Nassau is among the most prestigious Luxembourg orders. This insignia is the only complete set retained from the period between 1882 and 1892. The order included five civil and military classes, ranging from the Grand Cross to the Knight of Fifth Class.

This distinguished order of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, and the former Duchy of Nassau was established in 1858 as a joint order by the two lines of the House of Nassau. In 1892, it became an order with an unique rank. This is the highest honour of the Grand Ducal House of Luxembourg.
