Nick,

The obverse has Gamal Abdulnasser of Egypt and I suspect it is one of the many souvenir or memento medals issued during the 1950s and 1960s. I can't read the obverse script other than the last word which is 'the nation'.

Kind regards,

Owain

The reverse says " عاشت كل يدٍ تبني حجراً في صرح الوطن", "Long live every hand that builds a stone in the edifice of the nation" which a quick Google search indicates appears to be a Nasserist motto.

The flag is the pre-1958 one with a crescent and three stars, so hopefully that helps date the item.
