  1. This year Russian National Bank issued new commemorative 2 roubles and 5 roubles coins. It is very interesting, because it is first time when 5 rouble coin became commemorative. The theme of this new coins is the War of 1812. Pictures you can see on russian web-site, which have all new issues
    So in total it is 2 roubles - 17 coins. And 5 roubles - 10 coins. 10 roubles also will be in this series, picture you can see on web-site of Cental Bank of Russia
    Best Regards,
