Commemorative issue

Fauna in Cultural Monuments of Ukraine


Above is Ukraine's small coat of arms, the legend УКРАЇНА (Ukraine), the coin issue year 2017 and the coin face value 5/ ГРИВЕНЬ (5/hryvnias); there are monuments that stem from the unique Trypillian culture: in the center is a gilt bone plate in the form of an auroch's head (Ternopil oblast, 3700 - 3500 B.C.), to the right of which is a ritual vessel decorated with an auroch's head.


Engraver: Anatolii Demianenko


There is an auroch's head (to the left) and a fragment of a cave painting which depicts an auroch and goats that comes from the Stone Tomb (Kamyana Mohyla) in Zaporizhzhia oblast (to the right). The grottos and caves of the Stone Tomb feature several thousand petroglyphs - cave paintings that date back to a period from the Late Stone Age to the Middle Ages. On the right, against the background of the painting, is the legend ТУР (auroch).

Lettering: ТУР

Engraver: Anatolii Demianenko
