We have spent some two years working in Russia, have family roots
there, placed a geocache on the Red Square in Moscow - which seems to
be the most visited geocache in the country. This all lead us to
making a coin, which we believe is the first Russian geocoin.
Text on the coin is Moscow Russia - Red Square in Russian. Buildings depicted are Spasskaya Bashnya (Tower) of Kremlin and Saint Basil's Cathedral. Both dominant features of the Red Square, and also very close to our geocache. Tracking code prefix "HO" reads in cyrillic as "number", which we think is a nice little detail.
Stamped brass coin, 45 mm in diameter, hard enamel + glittering red in the star. As a special feature there are 12 stars stamped around the rim of the coin.
Each coin is packed in the red velvet pouch with "Red Square" printed in Russian.
