Please Help To identify Medal

It's from Sudan. The obverse features the Sudanese coat of arms

and the word Duty ("الواجب" 'el wajib"). The reverse says the Democratic Republic of Sudan ("جمهورية السودان الديمقراطية" 'Jumhuriyat el Sudan el Dimoqratiya').

It would appear to be the Medal of Duty, as shown here with ribbon:

Dear Nubirus,

This is the post-1969 DRS issue -  the 1956-69 RS issue has a rhino badge on the obverse - see attached. The medal comes in three classes.

Regards,

Owain

Nick, The is a commemorative medallion marking in 1978 the 10th Anniversary of the 1968 Ba'ath Revolution which brought the Ba'ath party to power and ultimately to the rule of Saddam Hussein. The case bears the inscription "Central Bank of Iraq". It is not an order or medal to be worn. No uniform (wearable) medal was issued to mark this anniversary. Kind regards, Owain
