This happens to be a German medal and I myself couldn't find much on it. I found the exact same medal at ma-shops.com and not much beyond that except this looks like a commemorative of some sort, but the one on their site was already sold.

Do a google translate on the german inscription. It appears to be the anniversary of a carnival. Not a particularly noteworthy event, plus the medal is obviously cheaply made of plated base metal. My guess that the value would be quite low.

It translates as "to remember carneval society a the jubilee year" fidelio elberfeld

It looks like possible silver plated brass or similar base metal

Trying to google any of the terms brings nothing up other than thousands of irrelevant music links.

Guess value is few quid/dollars at best?
