 Not Austrian   :D

I do have some non-Austrian stuff.  A simple bold design, I like it.

Yup, and that's Yuri Alekseyevich Gagarin (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gagarin), the first human in space, unless you believe the stories of the previous, failed attempts.

I also have the bi-metal one with him in a spacesuit, don't have a scan of it.  It is a much better looking coin.

That would be Y 676. You beat me there, Dale, but I just got into contact with a Russian trading partner (hint: he's on this forum), so there's hope :P
