Russia 10-RUBLES (Y-new) Bear + Tiger
This coin is from the 'Cities of Military Glory' series that started in 2011. Interestingly, these 10 ruble coins are mixed in over the years with the other circulating commemorative 10 ruble coins, but are both smaller and a different composition. I guess they aren't usable in vending machines.
This issue is for Khabarovsk, the administrative centre of Khabarovsk Krai in the far east of Russia, 30 km from the border of China. The Siberian tiger and bear on the coin are from the coat of arms, which also appears on the flag.
Thanks to Maria for gifting me this coin!
