Commemorative and Bullion Coins

Coins are a symbol of statehood and a rich source of information about important centuries-old events, traditions, culture, sports, and nature. The NBU launched its own numismatic program to mark important dates, and to commemorate ancient and modern events in Ukraine and abroad.

 

Commemorative coins

Commemorative coins have artistic value. These are limited mintage coins made of precious and non-precious metals. That is why the price of such coins is higher than their face value.

Coins issued by the NBU since 1995 are presented in this catalogue. New coins can be purchased on-line.

Bullion coins

The NBU issues bullion coins to provide people and organizations with an alternative way to invest. Bullion coins are made of the finest gold and silver, in accordance with global standards.

 

Such coins are legal tender and are also classified as investment metals. The face value of bullion coins is considerably lower than the value of the precious metals they are made of.

 

Numismatic souvenirs

The NBU produces the following types of numismatic souvenirs:

  • medals
  • silver replicas of banknotes
  • silver souvenir hryvnias of the Kyiv Rus type

 

  • sets of circulation and small-change coins
  • commemorative banknotes
  • uncut banknote sheets.
