The medal was struck at the Leningrad Mint in 1978 with the total circulation of 7083. It was intended first and foremost, for the attendees and guests of the congress, and also for a number of selected Communist Youth and Party organizers. In excellent condition. There are a couple of faint scuffs to the finish and a few minor contact marks, but no significant dings or noticeable wear to the raised details of the artwork. Attractive toning to the bronze throughout.
