Looking at toy shops in Western Europe, I think the Russian cartoon series that succeeded there was "Masha and the bear" (Ма́ша и Медве́дь). My granddaughters love it. Did they get a coin also?

The Moscow Metro

The Moscow Metro is the first and largest underground railway system in the Soviet Union and Russia. The first stage of its construction was completed on 15 May 1935. Its first line connected Sokolniki to Park Kultury, branching from Okhotny Ryad to Smolenskaya, with a total length of 11.2km.
Today, the Moscow Metro accounts for about 56% of the capital’s public transport passenger traffic. The average trip is about 14.5km long. On average, 9 million passengers travel by metro on weekdays. Every day more than 12 thousand trains navigate 15 metro lines (including the Moscow Central Ring (MCC) and the Moscow Monorail) with 275 stations (238 metro stations, 31 MCC stations, and 6 monorail stations). For 25% of metro stations, daily passenger traffic exceeds 50 thousand passengers. The average operating speed of Moscow Metro trains (with stops taken into account) is about 41.61 km/h. In addition, the timetable is followed effectively, with a minimum interval of 90 seconds.
The Moscow Metro is consistently ranked 1st in the world in terms of reliability, as well as passenger traffic intensity and volumes. It is among the top three of the world’s metro systems by almost all other indicators.

Each of the side-chapels is dedicated to the patron saint of one of the Russian Armed Forces branches.

100th Anniversary of the Foundation of the Foreign Intelligence Service of the Russian Federation

The Foreign Intelligence Service of the Russian Federation (Russia’s SVR) forms part of the Russian security forces and serves to protect the safety of individuals, the society and the state against external threats.
The foreign political intelligence service originated in the Special Division of the Russian Extraordinary Commission (VChK) to be officially established as a dedicated branch by summer 1920. 20 December 1920, when Felix Dzerzhinsky signed an order on the creation of the Foreign Division (INO) in the VChK, is commonly believed to be the date of the foundation of the foreign intelligence service in Russia. It was split from the Special Division of the VChK to become an independent branch.
Today, Russia’s SVR carries out intelligence activities in order to provide the President, the Federal Assembly and the Government of the Russian Federation with intelligence information for making proper political, economic and strategic military decisions, decisions in research-and-technology and environment protection areas, as well as to create the conditions facilitating the successful implementation of Russia’s policy to protect security, promote economic development, scientific and technological progress, and material and technical support of the security of the Russian Federation.

100th Anniversary of the Foundation of the Chuvash Autonomous Region

People first arrived in the territory of today’s Chuvashia approximately 80,000 years ago. In the 8th century, the Bulgar tribal union was established in the Middle Volga region. It was headed by the Bulgars and comprised the Suvar and the local Finno-Ugric tribes. At the end of the 9th century, this union transformed into the Volga Bulgaria state. In 1243, the Middle Volga region was absorbed into the Golden Horde as the Bulgar land. Founded in 1438, the Khanate of Kazan included not only the Tatars, but also conjoined the Bulgar Chuvash, Mari and southern Udmurt peoples, and parts of the Mordovians and Bashkirs. By the end of the 15th century, the medley of the Bulgar Chuvash and Mari peoples formed the modern Chuvash ethnic group that has preserved the Bulgar language and culture. In 1551, the Chuvash people joined the Russian state.
At the turn of the 19th–20th centuries, the Chuvash ethnic group consolidated into a nation. On 24 June 1920, the Russian Central Executive Committee and the RSFSR Council of People’s Commissars signed a decree on the foundation of the Chuvash Autonomous Region. On 21 April 1925, pursuant to the resolution of the Presidium of the Russian Central Executive Committee, it was transformed into the Chuvash Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic. On 24 October 1990, the Chuvash ASSR was reorganised into the Chuvash Soviet Socialist Republic, and on 13 February 1992 – into the Chuvash Republic of the Russian Federation.
The key sectors in Chuvashia’s economy are industrial production, specifically the manufacture of electric, electronic and optical equipment, the manufacture of food products including beverages, vehicle and equipment manufacturing, chemical production, and machinery and equipment production.
The Republic has 674 historical and cultural heritage sites protected at the national level, including 628 landmarks of regional importance.

100th Anniversary of the Foundation of the Republic of Karelia

People started to populate the territory of Karelia in the 7–6th centuries BC. After the foundation of the ancient Russian state Kievan Rus in the 9th century, the territory of Karelia came under its control. When Kievan Rus disintegrated in the 12th century, Karelia became part of the Novgorod Feudal Republic. In 1478, Karelia and other lands of Veliky Novgorod merged into the Russian state. In the 18th century, a considerable territory of Karelia was part of the Petersburg Province and, later on, of the Novgorod Province. In 1784, Karelia was part of the newly founded Olonets Province with its capital in Petrozavodsk. The remaining territory was integrated into the Vyborg and Arkhangelsk Provinces.
On 8 June 1920, the Russian Central Executive Committee approved a decree to integrate the areas of the Arkhangelsk and Olonetsk Provinces populated by the Karelians into the autonomous region – the Karelian Labour Commune. On 25 July 1923, pursuant to the resolution of the Russian Central Executive Committee, the Karelian Labour Commune was reorganised into the Karelian Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic. On 13 November 1991, the Karelian ASSR was renamed as the Republic of Karelia.
Today, owing to its advantageous geopolitical location, unique environment, abundant recreational resources, and centuries-old cultural and historical heritage, Karelia holds a special place in the tourism market. Karelia possesses thousands of original historical and cultural landmarks, nature sanctuaries, and historical sites of global and nation-wide importance, including the Kizhi Architectural Ensemble, the Valaam Monastery of the Transfiguration of the Saviour, Karelian petroglyphs (Onega Lake and White Sea petroglyphs), rune-singing villages that originated the runes of the Kalevala epos, and the Saami stone labyrinths and seidas. Over one million hectares of Karelia’s territory, which is 5.6% of the republic’s total area, are specially protected natural sites: the Paanajarvi, Vodlozersky and Kalevalsky National Parks, the Valaam Archipelago Natural Park, and the Kivach and Kostomuksha Nature Reserves. The Republic of Karelia tops Russian tourists’ adventure travel rating.

160th Anniversary of the Bank of Russia

In 1860, the Emperor of Russia Alexander II signed a decree to establish the State Bank. According to its charter, it was responsible for promoting ‘the revival of trade turnover and the resilience of the monetary system’. Alexander von Stieglitz, a renowned banker, entrepreneur and philanthropist, became the first Governor of the bank. Initially, the State Bank was mainly engaged in short-term commercial lending. In the 1920s, the bank was a key actor in the restoration of the country’s financial system and the development of exchange relationships. During the hardships of World War I and the Great Patriotic War, it focused on covering military expenditures and the supply of the army and households with money. In the Soviet Union, the State Bank was a lender for the centrally planned economy, issued money, and carried out international settlements. In the challenging 1990s, the bank did its best to keep the economy stable and created the system of foreign exchange regulation and control. Today, the Bank of Russia is a technologically advanced mega-regulator responsible for the stability of the entire financial system of the country.

Obverse. The mirror field of the disc features a relief image of the emblem of the Bank of Russia – a two-headed eagle with drooping wings – in a bead-shaped ring and a semicircular inscription ‘БАНК РОССИИ’ (BANK OF RUSSIA) below it; along the rim there are inscriptions divided by dots: the coin denomination ‘3 РУБЛЯ’ (3 RUBLES) above, the year of issue ‘2020 г.’ (2020) below and the indication of the precious metal, fineness, the mint trademark, and fine metal content in the middle.

Blockchain doesn't look like blocks on a chain, but I like the design anyhow. All the more since it also includes a piece of punched tape, a technology that preceded the floppy disk. ;)
