Comments

This coin celebrates the lion and its representations in the cultural monuments of Kyiv Rus. The tribes and peoples that inhabited Ukrainian lands for thousands of years have created countless works of art. Priceless cultural monuments from various periods in history tells us how ancient people learned to work with natural materials, and to make them powerful by using symbols - representations of birds, animals, people and ornaments, etc.
