Russia 10-RUBLES (Y938) Griffin

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 Altai Republic in south-western Siberia. Actually, it is in the very centre of Asia.

That's a griffin on the Altai coat of arms (aka griffon, gryphon). However, after doing some deep diving on Google, I have come up empty-handed as to the significance.
