I'll second that. However, is it an original or a modern copy? The certificate leaves me in doubt.

Of course, copy. :)
This hryvna issued by the National Bank of Ukraine as a replica coin type  Kiev hryvna XI - XIII centuries. This souvenir is made of silver 960 samples, weighs 165 grams, and its length is 7.4 cm.
Weight hryvna changed over the centuries. In particular, Kiev hryvna weighing 140-160 grams.

The top row - the first coins of Kievan Rus.
Zlatnik (AV) - the first ancient gold coin, minted in Kiev at the end of X - the beginning of XI century, shortly after the Christening of Rus Vladimir the Great.
Total found 11 such coins. It is now known whereabouts 10 of 11 found zlatniki.
In Russia - 8, Ukraine - 2.
Srebrenik (AR)- the first silver coin, minted in Kievan Rus at the end of the X century, then - in the beginning of XI century.

The rest of the coins - modern commemorative and investment.

Got a couple of postcards with coins. Trying to identify them, I came across this series.

C123a Wado Kaichin. Considered to be the first Japanese coins. (708-958.)
C123b Torai sen, imitation Chinese copper coins
C123c Hirumokin, Sekishugin, Yuzurihakin (gold and silver slugs and gold plate)
C123d Keicho Oban (1601)
C123e Keicho Chogin, Keicho Mameitagin (1601)

To be continued ...

Here is the rest:

C123f Tempo Tsuho and Kanei Tsuho (1835-1870 and 1626-1866)
C123g Tenbin, money changer's balance (19th century)
C123h Yamada Hagaki (early 17th century)
C123i "Money tree" (1863) The lower part with the casting canals is off the stamp
C123j Meiji era 2 sen, 50 sen, 20 yen (late 19th century)

The catalogue numbers are from the Sakura catalogue of Japanese stamps. The postcards, some the same, some similar, some different, are from the Currency Museum of the Bank of Japan.
