Ukrainian State Symbols (a set of commemorative coins)
Nominal: 15 uah
Circulation start date: 29.11.2022
This set celebrates the main state regalia and the symbols of Ukraine that embody the national idea and reflect the state’s historical continuity. Ukrainian state symbols tell millions of Ukrainians about the glory of their ancestors. The trident – a symbol of the Kyiv state of Volodymyr the Great – symbolizes the continuity of the historical development of the Ukrainian people. The song “Ukraine is not Yet Dead” has, for a century and a half, become a powerful symbol of Ukrainians’ struggle for independence, and is now their national anthem. The combination of blue and yellow – which has long been used by Ukrainians to represent their identity, and which stands for a clear sky and a wheat field – was for the first time officially approved as the Ukrainian flag by the Ukrainian People’s Republic. The set consists of the following coins: Ukraine’s Coat of Arms, Ukraine’s Flag, and Ukraine’s Anthem.
Obverse of Ukraine’s Coat of Arms coin: above is Ukraine’s small coat of arms – a golden trident on a blue shield (pad-printed); against the backdrop of sunrays is a stylized trident of the kind that was used by Volodymyr the Great; the lines of the trident show how tridents are formed; to the left are the legends 2022/УКРАЇНА/5 (2022/Ukraine/5), the graphic symbol of the hryvnia and the legend /НАШ/ГЕРБ (Ukraine’s coat of arms); beneath is the mint mark of the NBU’s Banknote Printing and Minting Works. Obverse of Ukraine’s Flag coin: above is Ukraine’s small coat of arms; against the backdrop of sunrays is a flapping stylized blue and yellow flag (pad-printed); to the left are the legend 2022/УКРАЇНА/5 (2022/Ukraine/5), the graphic symbol of the hryvnia and the legend /НАШ/СТЯГ (Ukraine’s flag); beneath are the following lines from the Flag poem: СИНІЙ, ЯК МОРЕ, ЯК ДЕНЬ, ЗОЛОТИЙ – /З НЕБА І СОНЦЯ НАШ ПРАПОР ЯСНИЙ./ОЛЕКСАНДР ОЛЕСЬ (as blue as the sea, as gold as daylight – /from sky and sunlight our flag is bright./Oleksandr Oles; there is also the mint mark of the NBU’s Banknote Printing and Minting Works. Obverse of Ukraine’s Anthem coin: against the background of a guelder-rose branch with red berries (pad-printed) are Ukraine’s small coat of arms and a music sheet against the backdrop of sunrays; to the left are the legend 2022/УКРАЇНА/5 (2022/Ukraine/5), the graphic symbol of the hryvnia and the legend /НАШ/ГІМН (Ukraine’s anthem); there is also the mint mark of the NBU’s Banknote Printing and Minting Works.
Reverse of Ukraine’s Coat of Arms coin: surrounded by sunrays is a composition made of tridents that symbolizes Ukraine’s historical heritage – from the two-pronged symbol of Sviatoslav the Brave, to tridents on gold and silver coins of the Kyiv State, symbols used during Ukraine’s liberation struggle in 1917–1921, and up to the modern symbol of Ukraine – its coat of arms (latent image); to the left is the legend НАШЕ КОРІННЯ (our roots). Reverse of Ukraine’s Flag coin: surrounded by sunrays is an ornamented stylized bird, holding a guelder-rose branch and symbolizing the soul of Ukrainians who strive for freedom and independence; beneath is the legend НАША ДУША (our soul). Reverse of Ukraine’s Anthem coin: surrounded by sunrays is Ukrainian folk hero Cossack Mamai under the trunk of an oak tree – a free spirit, defender, warrior, traveler, and a skilled rider – symbolizing Ukrainian mentality and the eternal defender of Ukraine; the Cossack has modern attributes – instead of a sabre there is a modern assault rifle on the oak tree; above the image of the Cossack is the following semicircular legend (lines from the anthem): ДУШУ Й ТІЛО МИ ПОЛОЖИМ ЗА НАШУ СВОБОДУ/І ПОКАЖЕМ, ЩО МИ, БРАТТЯ, КОЗАЦЬКОГО РОДУ (Soul and body shall we lay down for our freedom/ and show that we are brethren of the Cossack nation) – the words that are still relevant; the legend НАШЕ ГАСЛО (our motto) is to the right of the Cossack.
