200th Anniversary of the Patriotic War of 1812

Note that Russia has also issued 34 (yes, THIRTY FOUR! :o) different coins commemorating the same event. 28 of them are circulating commemoratives and 6 are 'collector only' issues.

The Belarus coins shown above are for collectors too, in fact there are no real coins from Belarus, all are pseudo coins. :(

Well, they are not "imaginary" coins either. Their collector coins are all official issues. It is true though that Belarus has never issued circulation coins and uses only banknotes.

The model would have been more modern, but indeed, the wheel arrangement (0-6-0) of this locomotive is suitable for coal trains: heavy pulling at relatively low speed.
