This page provides links to my collection of coins from Ukraine. The full list of issued coins since 1995 can be found on www.bank.gov.ua/control/uk/currentmoney/cmcoin/list . Most are (Ag925) or from nickel-silver. Many are minted from German silver or bimetal non precious. Few are from Gold (Au900). Five coins have been issued as buillon coins (Au 999.9) of Archangel Michael.

In accordance with the Ukrainian President Decree and Articles 99 and 102 of the Constitution of Ukraine, a monetary reform was implemented in Ukraine on September 2-16, 1996. The national currency Hryvnia and its one hundredth part- kopiyka was put into circulation. Lettered code - UAH, numeric code - 980, abbreviated name - Hrn. Issuing institution - the National Bank of Ukraine.To date ukraine regularly issues silver and gold commemorative coins since independence 2001 in several categories.

Most are in 925 Silver (sometimes thousands minted) and some are coloured or bi-metal. All are accompanied by certificates of authenticity and some are available in smart green velvet-lined boxes.

Follow a couple of examples I have aquired, both with a reasonably high mintage.

Texts and details are with thanks from the National Bank Website
