I've had this for a while and have not been able to figure it out. Does anyone recognize it or can translate the inscription?

Sized about 32mm & 19.3g.

Thank you!

I suppose this is an Egyptian coptic medal commemorating the apparition of the Virgin Mary at the church in Zeitoun in April 1968.
On one side it depicts the Virgin Mary, on the other side the church of Zeitoun with the apparition of the Virgin.

I didn't find info on the token itself, but I did find info on the event it commemorates:

Hi bart - thank you so much for the reply. I agree! That does look like the topic of the medal.

I really appreciate it! I've wondered about this depiction for years!

The numerals at the bottom read 68 / 4 / 2, so that's definitely right.
