Obverse bears 5 line legend in Spanish commemorating the center's 50th anniversary; on reverse embematic device of the community with bare scroll below (where a recipient's name would have been etched), and a pair of shaking hands below. Appears to be a prize medal issued in time for the commemoration, probably for service to the community.

The "Jewish Union" was originally founded in 1906 with 25 members, and in 1911 the "Centro Israelita de Córdoba" was founded; in 1915 both organizations merged to for the "Centro Union Israelita", which appears to be a merging of Sephardic and Ashekenazi communities in Cordoba.
