Hello and welcome to CoinPeople. Nice medal. I don't know much about these and have no reference works that cover them. Hopefully some of the folks here will be able to provide a bit of information for you.

It is difficult to say without seeing the reverse side of the medal. However, I am guessing it has the Lord's Prayer on the other side. If so, it has a catalog number of Baker 650A. Baker is the definitive work on Washington medals. The 1999 edition of the catalog list a value of $10 for a medal in the condition that you appear to have. I would say today's value maybe slightly higher, but not much higher.
