The medal in question is listed as Medal Pamiatkowy z Okazji 50tej Rocznicy Bitwy pod Monte Cassino / 50th Anniversary Medal of the Battle of Monte Cassino.
So that would place its production in 1994 unfortunately I can not answer who designed and made the medal.
I hope that the above information is of some use and help
Great thread guys ! I finally managed to dig up a picture of a cross that I haven't seen in the thread before. It's a cross that has been struck in reverse, upside down. The back has been struck properly. I have included a normal cross for comparison purposes. As you can see someone wore it and loved it.
May I be the first to welcome you to the Forum, it is not unknown for even the numbers on the reverse side of the Monte Cassino Cross to be placed the wrong way round I have a set with a 48,000 number and the Cross is numbered 84,000.

Thank you very much Andrzejku I appreciate your hard work in identifying these man. The error cross is the only one I have seen, so I was a bit apprehensive about getting it. Things like this make collecting interesting I guess. I was wondering if anyone has crosses with consecutive numbers? That would be quite a find!! Cheers
