Russia 10-RUBLES (Y1574) Siberian 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 Vladivostok, the coastal city that is the home port of the Russian Navy's Pacific Fleet. The emblem featuring the Siberian Tiger is taken from the Vladivostok coat of arms.
