Akimushkina shows a cosmonaut, male and female workers holding a sheath of wheat, the Spasskaya Tower of Kremlin, an industrial plant on the background, and a banner with Lenin's profile at the top. The depiction of the cosmonaut is an unusual feature, certainly meant to emphasize the Soviet leadership in space exploration (before the American moon landings). Raised lettering on the reverse "In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Soviet rule in the USSR".

The medal is in excellent condition. Shows no significant wear, bumps or noticeable scratches. The details of the artwork are perfectly preserved and crisp. There are a few tiny dings to the raised edge on the reverse, but they are nearly unnoticeable to the naked eye. There is very attractive dark patina to recessed areas which makes nice contrast with the raised points.
