Russia 10-RUBLES (Y1570) Bactrian Camel

This coin is from 'The Russian Federation' series, a series of coins that started in 2005 with each celebrating a region of Russia.

This issue is for the Chelyabinsk Oblast, which features a Bactrian camel (double hump) on its coat of arms.

The government of Chelyabinsk region tells us...

The key figure of Chelyabinsk region is a white double-humped camel carrying yellow baggage. This is a sturdy noble animal looking respectable and allegorically depicting wisdom, longevity, memory, loyalty and patience.

The double-humped camel ... represents the basic element of the historic coat of arms of Iset province.

спасибо Maria, for obtaining this hard-to-find coin for me!
