I usually don't collect Russian silver collector coins but when I saw this one, it just caught my eyes and I decided to go for it. It arrived last week and it's indeed a nice coin! 8)

It commemorates 19th World Festival of Youth and Students 2017. It is 1 Ounce of silver (Ag 925, 33.94g) and 39 mm in diameter. 3000 coins were struck.

The artists: E.V. Kramskaya (obverse), A.D. Schablykin (reverse).
The sculptors: A.A. Dolgopolova (obverse), computer simulation (reverse).
Mint: Moscow Mint (MМД).

The obverse

on the mirror field of the disc the relief image of the National Coat of Arms of the Russian Federation, over it along the rim the semicircular inscription "РОССИЙСКАЯ ФЕДЕРАЦИЯ" (RUSSIAN FEDERATION), framed on both sides by doubled rhombuses, below under the coat of arms: to the left indications of the precious metal and its fineness, to the right the fine metal content and the mint trade mark, at the bottom in the centre in three lines the inscription "БАНК РОССИИ" (BANK OF RUSSIA), the denomination of the coin "3 РУБЛЯ" (3 RUBLES), the year of issue "2017 г."

More information here.

Too tired to look it up now, but I believe there is/are one or more earlier commemorative on one of these events.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
