Default Elaborate award; id help please!

A friend of mine has this award... he found some on it on line. Thinking perhaps it's a reissue? Anyway, this is a very elaborate award. I would like to know if it is genuine, what it was awarded for, to whom, and when. Also a value (if it's real) as he's thinking of selling.

Thank you Alan! So the one I've pictured "may" be genuine?? it's not marked w/a purity for gold (i.e. .750 for 18k for instance) so it might be a silver/gold plated one?

Again, thanks.

Are the gold ones marked for purity? Or are the silver gilt ones marked to denote they are not gold?

Looking at this one I would have to say it is genuine gilded silver version. I have checked the one I have which is also gilded silver and there are no purity marks that I can see.

I thought silver gilt pieces (which were normally meant to be gold) were always marked with the idea that after the war they could exchange them for a gold award?
