In Ukraine, from November 11, a new commemorative coin of a special issue “Airborne Assault Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine” will be put into circulation.
< p> This was reported by the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.
A 10 UAH coin, weighing 12.4 grams, is made of a zinc-based alloy with a nickel coating. There will be 1 million such coins in Ukraine.
How the new commemorative coin looks like
On the obverse of the coin there are:
- the inscription “Ukraine”
- Small State Emblem of Ukraine;
- sleeve insignia of the Airborne Assault Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine;
- the emblem of the Airborne Assault Forces of the Armed Forces;
- the hryvnia symbol;
- the coin was minted in 2021;
- the inscription “Airborne assault military of the Armed Forces of Ukraine”;
- the logo of the NBU Banknote and Mint.
On the reverse, on a mirrored background there is a symbolic image of a paratrooper warrior in knightly armor, behind which half-spread wings are a symbol of the patron saint of the army – the Archangel Michael.
As we wrote earlier, when calculating with circulating coins in denominations of 1 and 2 hryvnia among citizens of retirement age with low vision and people with visual impairment problems arise. The National Bank planned to start work on changing the design and making these coins more convenient for use.
Recall that in June 2021, the NBU put into circulation four commemorative coins of different denominations at once, dedicated to outstanding personalities and folk art our country.
