Hi cazack,

This second medal is a copy of the Rama V Rajaruchi Medal.

Hi cazack,

Welcome to collecting Thai medals ! 

This particular medal was never made in a bronze class, so any bronze is a copy.  Often one can often tell a copy by quality with a side by side comparison with a genuine example, but lacking that, then the quality should be as a mint strike like a coin. Hallmarks - the most common being "Monnaie de Paris" is also of course copied. Rama V medals are heavily copied, and most of what you find for Rama V medals inside and outside of Thailand will likely be copies. Non-Rama V medals are rarely copied.
