Vince,

I can't help you with the one on the left but the one on the right has the flag of Suriname (in South America), and says (in Dutch), "Courage, Conduct, Faith"

 

Best,

Chris

The first one is from Kwazulu (former South African Homeland).

It looks like the Kwazulu Correctional Services  

KZCS Medal for Merit (1991-94)

Insignia: A circular silver medal displaying a traditional headring within a wreath of leaves (obverse) and the KwaZulu coat of arms (reverse).

However, yours is with a star above the headring (different version ??)

2nd. medal is indeed from Surinam.

moed = courage.

beleid = policy. (but can also mean behaviour (conduct)).

trouw = loyalty.
