georgivs vi dei gra britt omn rex fid def ind imp


I do not know whether this is a coin or a medal? Please give some comments...
On the king face side written as " georgivs vi dei gra britt omn rex fid ". What is the meaning of that ?

Maybe it is a Latin words that describe as "George VI, By the Grace of God, King of all the British Territories, Defender of the Faith".
Price:RM180

The medal awarded to King’s Own men is mainly seen bearing the bars ‘PALESTINE’, the 2nd Battalion served in Palestine during the emergency from September 1938 to September 1939, and ‘ARABIAN PENINSULA’, the 1st Battalion served on internal security duties in Aden and Bahrain for over three months in the latter half of 1958. A number of General Service Medals (1918-1962) with other bars were awarded to King’s Own personnel for services on the Staff or on attachment to other units or formations. An example of this in the museum collection is a medal bearing the bar ‘MALAYA’.
