Below is a guide to the meaning of the symbols on the front and back of the Jubilee Medal of St. Benedict:

Above the chalice and the raven in the center, on either side of the image of St. Benedict:

Crux Sancti Patris Benedicti
(Cross of the Holy Father Benedict)

Words around the perimeter of the medal:

Ejus in obitu nro praesentia muniamur
(May we at our death be fortified by his presence)

The initials on the cross in the center:

C. S. S. M. L. — N. D. S. M. D.
Crux Sacra Sit Mihi Lux — Non Draco Sit Mihi Dux
(The Holy Cross be my light — Let not the dragon be my guide)

The circles by the four corners of the cross:

Crux Sancti Patris Benedicti
(Cross of the Holy Father Benedict)

The initials around the perimeter:

V R S N S M V — S M Q L I V B
Vade Retro Satana, Nunquam Suade Mihi Vana — Sunt Mala Quae Libas, Ipse Venena Bibas
(Step back, Satan, do not suggest to me thy vanities — Evil are the things thou profferest, drink thou thy own poison)
