The mesh is constructed from radial lines and concentric circles. You need to have enough of both to get decent detail in your 3D print output. In the screenshot above I have set them 350 and 200 respectively.

Don't use settings of 20 and 10! The object created would be very low resolution!

Here is one example of using the medal mesh for creating a medal, you'll need to use the vignette settings to smooth the image at its edges:
