Russia 10-RUBLES 2011 Yelets Deer

This is the first coin issued in the 'Cities of Military Glory' series and commemorates Yelets, a city dating back to the 12th century.

The flag and coat of arms of Yelets features a red deer with golden antlers. While the design is a modern one, it is based on a previous design from 1781 [SOURCE].

Thanks to Maria for gifting me this coin!
