It was instituted on 3rd January 1944 to recognize the 250th Infantry Division. The medal was die struck in zinc alloy with a bronze wash. It shows on the bottom obverse a swastika with a spray of laurel leafs emanating from each side. The leafs are arranged differently on both ends. A sword crosses the center with two shields superimposed on it. The shield on the left shows the Wehrmacht eagle while the other featured the Falangists crushed arrows. Directly above the shields is an M-43 German helmet facing left, with the faint outline of the Wehrmacht Eagle on it.
The reverse bottom has an Iron Cross, with the ribbon spread above it intertwined with a spread of leaves on both sides. On the left it shows laurels while on the right oak leaves. In the center, the medal bore the inscription "DIVISION ESPANOLA DE VOLUNTARIOS EN RUSSIA" (Division of Spanish Volunteers in Russia).
