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.
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.
