Russia 50-RUBLES (Y333) Oriental Stork

Non-circulating coin

A stork! I didn't know there were storks in Russia, but then again, it's a pretty big place. This is an Oriental Stork, found in the far eastern tip of Russia. It was once found in Japan and Korea, but populations there have vanished. The estimated remaining 1,000-2,500 Oriental Storks (as of 2009) are found mainly in Russia and China during the breeding season. In Russia, this bird is also known as the Far Eastern Stork.
