It's not a medal. It is a token made as a copy of an Ottoman 500 kurush gold coin. Copies of coins like this were seen throughout the Middle East as jewelry, on things like wedding dresses and veils, perhaps as good luck charms.

Dave is right it is a copy of a 500 kuursh of Abdul Aziz, year 7 (1867). I have seen similar to these before sometimes in bronze-gilt.
