The National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) has presented a new coin dedicated to Ukrainian children.
The presentation took place on the International Children's Day during the conference "UA: War. Unsung lullaby," according to the regulator.
"For every nation, children are a treasure and a future. This is what we were thinking about when creating our new commemorative coins. This is our dedication to Ukrainian children, not only those who have already been born, but also future generations who will still be born in a free and independent Ukraine," said NBU Deputy Governor Oleksiy Shaban.
What does a coin look like?
The coin "Born in Ukraine" has two versions, they are made of silver and nickel silver. The face value of both coins is 5 hryvnias.
The obverse depicts a picture filled with folk color, "Lullaby" - the parents' house surrounded by mallow and towels, which symbolizes home, lullaby and procreation.
On the reverse there is a painting "Connection". Against the backdrop of a stylized universe, the baby astronaut, which is inextricably linked by the umbilical cord with mother Ukraine.
Both paintings used in the sketches belong to the brush of the famous Ukrainian artist Oleg Shuplyak. Sculptors: Anatoliy Demianenko, Volodymyr Atamanchuk.
