Above the oval is the royal crown. The reverse has two threaded fixing lugs, lone retaining its nut. The slight horizonatl curve to the badge suggests it may have been used on a fom of headdress.
Both sides of the badge are gold coloured although the camera has made the reverse look more silver white in colour.
