It is a medal dated 1951 celebrating enduring friendship between China and Russia.  It is very interesting that the writings were in Traditional Chinese.  Simplified Chinese were not established in 1951, so this is a rare example of an official PRC artifact in Traditional Chinese.  There are interesting cross currents of politics and ideology around Simplified/Traditional Chinese, so IMHO this should be a very collectable item.
