It reads: "Ministerul Instructiunii, Premiul I"

Probably a school/college award.

Yes, it is a school award, Mihai issue (there is also a Carol II issue and a very different Carol I issue). This school award had no ribbon.

Ok,

Thank you Dragos.

I suppose this medal precede Carol II's reign (between the Regency : 1927-1930).

Here is a commemorative medal of the visit of King Ferdinand and Queen Mary to the city of Alba-Julia in 1922 [note the period spelling of the city's name, see my comment on the name of the ship Alba-Julia, not Alba Iulia!]. Any further details? [currently on eBay]:

It is a version for wear of the medal issued with the occasion of the coronation of King Ferdinand and Queen Maria on 15 October 1922. Below is the table version of the medal.

They look like replicas to me. Anyhow, here they are:

F.Y.I.
Early fakes made in Bucharest. Very crude. Later made pieces are of better quality with hallmarks. Last month this fake artist has aquired a gold metal gilting equipment and his fake pieces are probably going to be very difficult to detect unless you compare them with the originals. He only makes between 1 to 5 pieces then moves on.
