Comments

This coin celebrates the deer and its representations, which symbolized its power, speed, and untamed spirit. These representations are found in cultural monuments from various epochs. One of the periods includes the period when the Scythians, who left behind a great legacy, flourished on the Ukrainian steppe. Representations of the deer have also been found in works that are masterpieces of human genius, but whose age and origin have remained unclear for centuries.
