Russia 10-RUBLES (Y987) Horse

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 Republic of Adygea, an area in the far western part of Russia. On the coin (and coat of arms) is a rearing horse bearing the "hero" with the flame he stole from the gods for the good of the people [SOURCE].

Thanks to Maria for gifting this coin to the Coin Zoo!
