Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Medal"

The meaning of "Medal" in various phrases and sentences

Q: "Your medal's in the mail"
Apparently, I think it's a pharse used by native, but it doesn't appear in a dictionary and the sort of thing. Can anyone explain this phrase? ne anlama geliyor?
A: He's not being literal, he's making fun of him for refusing to look. You get medals to celebrate winning or performing better than other people, so "your medal's in the mail" means that someone has posted him a medal and he'll receive it soon. I think the point is that he's implying that the one refusing to look thinks he's better than the speaker for not looking, but the speaker is trying to tell him that it doesn't actually matter.

I haven't watched the show and I don't know what he's "looking" (or not looking) at, so I'm basing this explanation on the clip alone.
