Ukranian Coins - Anybody Got / Seen Any?


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

With Ukraine very much in the news, and also much discussed here on TSF, I found myself thinking about Ukrainian coins.

Could I remember owing any? Seeing any? Knowing what they look like? The name of the Ukrainian currency?

First, I looked at Wikipedia, because I could not remember their currency:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ukrainian_hryvnia

I found it very informative, and there was some intriguing stuff about grammatical "cases", which could get very confusing.

I was sure that we must have handled some Ukrainian coins at some stage in the past, so I was happy to find that we did have a web page for them on the oldest of our heritage websites:

https://24carat.co.uk/frame.php?url=ukraine.html

Although we only had one single coin shown on the page:

Next time I am at our showroom, I must look to see it we have examples of Ukrainian circulation coins.

Anybody else got any Ukrainian coin photos to share with us?

There wasn't much nice ukrainian coin designs. The most known here is the Archangel Gabriel gold and silver bullion coins, released since 2012, if i remember right. They also released commemorative gold and silver coins, but i don't remember any, that i liked.

Politics aside, there are many, many great belarussian and, of course, russian coins. To be honest, Russia released some of the nicest modern coins since the late 80's. I guess for collectors will be hard, to buy the new releases. But i guess, as always, coins will find their way.

And I have a full roll of these, which I am reluctant to break open to look at properly :D

Have you got any details of the denominations, translations, etc?

I think the Transdnistria ones are probably medallions rather than coins, for the tourist / souvenir trade.

They're all non-circulating but none are medallions as far as I can tell.

Here's the details about the Ukrainian ones: https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces312565.html

And the Transnistria ones have a value of 1 Ruble: https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces90291.html
