It appears to be commemorating two things, the centennial of the robbery but not the centennial of the courthouse as it was designed by P. H. Weathers and built in 1907-1908.
You have . . .
One of many local type medals made just about everywhere about everything imaginable.
Jesse James would be a popular subject which makes it a better find. I like it.

Here's a Wiki with info.

Here's what it says in there about Gallatin MO.

On December 7, 1869, Frank and Jesse James are believed to have robbed the Daviess County Savings Association in Gallatin, Missouri.
Jesse is suspected of having shot down the cashier, John W. Sheets, in the mistaken belief that he was Samuel P. Cox, the Union militia officer who had ambushed and killed "Bloody Bill" Anderson during the Civil War.
The James brothers were unknown up to this point; this may have been their first robbery.
Their names were later added to previous robberies as an afterthought.
My favorite album!
