2020. Commemorative and Investment Coins of the Bank of Russia

Creator of Russian porcelain D.I. Vinogradov – 300th Anniversary of his Birth (1720)

Dmitry Vinogradov (1720-1758) was a Russian scientist and the founder of porcelain production in Russia.
In 1744, Russian Empress Elizabeth ordered the founding of the Neva Porcelain Manufactory (in 1765, it became the Imperial Porcelain Factory) to discover the secret of porcelain manufacture, which at that time was known only in China and Saxony. Dmitry Vinogradov, who had just returned from Germany, where he studied mining and metallurgy, as well as chemistry and physics, came to work in the factory and became a student of the foreign master Christoph Hunger.
During his period of training, Vinogradov engaged in the active research of raw materials, sought the optimal composition of a porcelain mix, developed various recipes for porcelain enamel and tested different firing methods. In 1747, his hard work resulted in the production of the first sample of Russian porcelain.
In 1748, after Hunger was dismissed because of his incompetence, Vinogradov was named head of the factory and turned his attention to the manufacturing process. As a result of very many tests, Vinogradov managed to achieve a quality of porcelain equal to the best European examples. The factory began the production of porcelain pieces for the Imperial Court, such as snuffboxes, inkpots, candleholders and the like. However, Vinogradov did not achieve wide recognition, as, for the purpose of preserving the secrecy of his porcelain recipe, he was virtually kept inside the factory, where he died in complete obscurity. Very few pieces made personally by him have survived to the present.

200th Anniversary of the Discovery of Antarctica by Russian Seamen Faddey F. Bellingshausen and Michail P. Lazarev

On 28 January 1820, a Russian expedition led by Fabian Gottlieb von Bellingshausen and Mikhail Lazarev discovered Antarctica. It was on that day that the sloops Vostok and Mirny reached the land of the southern continent for the first time in history. The first Russian Antarctic expedition is considered one of the most difficult in the history of navigation. During the 751-day expedition, the sailors, though navigating impassable ice fields, were able not only to establish the existence of the sixth continent, but also to discover 29 islands (Peter I Island, Alexander Land, etc.) and to gather unique scientific data.

Obverse.

Could the decoration of grapevine branches on the first coin be a little joke on the name ВИНОГРАДОВ (referring to a bunch of grapes)?

10 rubles bimetal.
These coins are in circulation. I received similar ones in the store for change. But it was a long time ago.
Can we say that these coins are circulating?

Weapons Designer Pyotr Goryunov

Pyotr Maximovich Goryunov (1902–1943) was a Soviet weapons designer, who developed the 7.62 mm Goryunov heavy machine gun, 1943 design (SG-43), which entered service in 1943.
When the Great Patriotic War began, the development of a new medium machine gun became a pressing issue. The new firearm had to be lighter than the reliable and powerful, but too heavy, Maxim machine gun. After competitive tests, Goryunov’s SG-43 machine gun was chosen.
The SG-43 beat out all competitors, including the DS-43 machine gun, created by the leading Soviet weapons designer Vasily Degtyaryov, in such aspects as construction simplicity, accuracy of fire, durability of parts and reliability of operation. The SG-43 was accepted into service with the wheeled Degtyaryov mount and was quickly commissioned for mass production due to its significantly simplified manufacturing technology. Much lower weight with nearly the same accuracy of fire, compared to Maxim machine gun, paved the way to success of Goryunov firearm in assault operations of Soviet troops during the final period of the war.

Weapons Designer Leonid Ermash

Leonid Lvovich Ermash (1906–?) was a Soviet ship designer. He oversaw the development of the D-3 long-range torpedo boat, accepted for service in 1940.
The D-3 torpedo boat marked the beginning of a new stage in Soviet shipbuilding. Compared to its predecessors–close-range torpedo boats–the D-3 boasted higher navigability, which allowed it to operate farther from the shore.
Owing to its improved wooden frame, the boat had quite high durability and was able to survive hundreds of penetration holes. The navigation equipment as well as the boat's deck were improved. The latter had enough space for a platoon of marines. The boats of the second series carried more powerful American-made motors, making them faster and more manoeuvrable.
D-3 torpedo boats were widely used during the Great Patriotic War to deploy marine troops in enemy territory, to support large ships and to lay minefields.

Weapons Designer Anatoly Maslov

Anatoly Ioasafovich Maslov (1884–1968) was a Soviet shipbuilder and the chief designer of the Project 26 light cruiser Kirov, launched in 1936.
The Project 26 cruisers were the first large ships built in the Soviet Union. Due to a lack of experience in building such ships, they were designed on the basis of the light cruiser Eugenio di Savoia, whose blueprints were acquired from Italy. Owing to the cooperation with Italian experts, the development of the cruiser Kirov allowed the adoption and use of cutting-edge technology. That said, the Soviet cruiser was not merely a copy of the Italian prototype; on the contrary, it was the result of serious redevelopment. In particular, it boasted heavy artillery weapons, suitable for a heavy cruiser, and high durability.
During the Great Patriotic War, the Kirov actively participated in military operations in the Baltic Sea and took part in the defence of Tallinn and Leningrad, deflecting enemy air strikes, helping contain ground forces and supporting the assault of the Soviet Army. The Kirov came under heavy artillery and aerial attacks many times. It was seriously damaged a few times, but never sank.
In 1943, for model execution of combat missions against the Nazi German invaders, the cruiser Kirov was awarded the Order of the Red Banner.

An interesting MTB, with a wooden hull. 73 boats built in class. Standard armament, somewhat unusual array of three engines. Disappointing speed, similar to a contemporary Italian destroyer, much slower than a US PT boat, but admittedly faster than a very large majority of British navy ships. The first boat of the class, the prototype D-3 was fitted with gas engines. It was slightly smaller than the rest of the class but could make a more satisfactory top speed of 48 knots. See also here.

Displacement 36.2 tons. Dimensions 22.2 x 4.04 x 1.8 m. 3 petrol internal combustion engines, 2400 hp. Speed ​​32 - 35/11 knots, range 360 ​​miles. Armament: 2 x 21 inch torpedo tubes, 1-2 x 20 mm machine guns (Bofors?), 2 x 12.7-mm (US made .5 inch mm AA?) machine guns, 4 B-1 depth charges, 8 M-1 depth charges.
