  10th Anniversary of Transdniestria

Medal established by Presidential decree no. 27 of 1 February 2000. Made of brass (latun), 33 mm in diametre. This is quite a rare medal as Transdniestria is a separatist territory with all the trappings of a State including award ceremonies. Reputedly medals have been made in Russia and are awarded with pomp by the self-proclaimed "President" Mr. Igor Nikolaevich Smirnov.
I am trying to find out how many people received this medal.
