That is the reverse of a Belgian WW1 Victory Medal, so I've moved it to the right place.

the medal does have French text on it(as well as Dutch), so no wonder if someone thinks it is French.

Most allied WW1 countries have a victory medal.

They all have the same kind of ribbon and the things you can see on them are different however of the same kind (almost all of them have a person on the front).

It is a very interesting medal, this one indeed clearly Belgian, as Rick already indicated.

here's a nice site showing a lot of victory medals.
