Benedict XIV established the design of this medal. On one side it carries the image of St. Benedict holding a cross in his hand; on the other side there is a larger cross with Latin initials. Due to the fact that the cross represented here is an essential element of this medal, it is called the Medal/Crucifix of St. Benedict.
On the back is an effigy of the Saint, holding the cross in his right hand and the Rules in his left hand; on his right there is a cup from which a serpent is escaping (a recollection of the poisoned wine which he miraculously escaped); on the left is a crow taking away the poisoned bread.
Underneath are the words: EX S.M. CASINO MDCCCLXXXX(From the Holy Mount Cassino 1880). On the two sides CRUX SANCTI PATRIS BENEDICTI (Cross of Holy Father Benedict). Around the image: EIUS IN OBITU NOSTRO PRAESENTIA MUNIAMUR (May we be strengthened by his presence in the hour of our death!).
