10 Ruble Space Coin is Issued by Central Bank

 A 10 Rubles coin with a space ship, stars and the Earth depicted on it has been introduced into circulation today by the Central Bank. The “space” coin is devoted to the 50th Anniversary of the first human flight in space.


The coin is made out of non-precious metal, its diameter is 22 mm. There is an inscription on it: “50th Anniversary of the first human flight in space”. 50 million coins have been issued. The anniversary coin could be used for paying as a usual one.

It is not clear why the Central Bank has issued the coin in December but not in April when 50th Anniversary of the first human flight in space was widely celebrated. In April the Bank issued a coin devoted to Yuriy Gagarin. It was a 1 000 Ruble collection coin, made out of gold. Only 500 coins were issued.
