I think I can translate.  Above the snake reads" 15th international coin festival"  and below the snake reads "year 1989" "Tokyo" "Japan numismatic dealers association"

The last image reads "made by Japan MInt"

It's a medal to momemmorate annual international coin festival in Tokyo.   Mintage 1,000 and was sold for about $230 each.
