Table medal is an old numismatic term used to describe a commemorative medal that is not an award and is not meant to be worn. A medal that is an award but not meant to be worn is a non-portable medal. The Hamburg Fire Medal of 1842 illustrated here is a good example of a table medal while the Firestone Company medals are non-portable awards for military service during the second world war.
