In early 2014, tensions between Crimea, the Ukraine and Russia came to a head. So in March, Crimea declared its independence from Ukraine – a move that some labeled as the biggest crisis between the East and West since the Cold War era.
To commemorate Crimea’s independence, this privately-issued 10 Roubles coin was struck. The obverse of each bi-metallic coin features the denomination (though it was never issued as legal tender). An outline of both the country and a dove taking flight are on the reverse, with an inscription that translates to “Independent Crimea” and the date of independence – March 11, 2014. Order this Uncirculated coin today, and add an important piece of modern history to your collection.
