Smooth with in-depth legends


This coin celebrates the wolf and its representations on the cultural monuments of Kyiv Rus, a period in the development of Ukrainian society. The original culture of Kyiv Rus did not copy or adopt the legacies of other cultures. Instead, it organically combined cultural elements from neighboring countries, tribes and peoples with its own traditions. The tribes and peoples that inhabited Ukrainian lands for thousands of years created a culture and handed it down to future generations, ensuring uninterrupted cultural progress.
