1914 Spanking the Kaiser Belgium Medal OBV
1914 Belgian Satirical Silver Medal possibly Joseph Jacques C├ęsaire Joffre, Commander-in-Chief of French forces on the Western Front depicted as "Spanking the Kaiser Pig".

Wilhelm II was the last German Emperor (Kaiser) and King of Prussia, ruling the German Empire and the Kingdom of Prussia from 15 June 1888 to 9 November 1918. He was the eldest grandchild of Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom and related to many monarchs and princes of Europe, most notably, King George V of the United Kingdom and Emperor Nicholas II of Russia.

The story of The Kaiser and of WWI are just too long to condense here in a post.
I will say that these Kings, Queens, Czars and Emperors, seem to me, to have all sent many a soldier to death over some jealous family issues.

I have seen a very similar medal with different wording for Liege Belgium.
I cannot translate what I think I see here as AHILABONNE CORRECTION
The medal is 28.3 mm in diameter and is made of silver. It was tested and it came back 90% silver content, with a total weight of .272 ounces or 7.63 grams.
