Trying to see if this Red Crescent Medal is bronze or gilded gold

Hi all!

I finally found a Red Crescent medal after looking for years. I was especially happy to find one with a silver oak leaf! I was curious though, I couldn’t tell if this was the Bronze version or the gold version. My guess is that it’s bronze but wouldn’t that mean it would have a bronze oak leaf? Also never mind the French medal case, I use that just for presentation:).
