The Bank of Khanty-Mansiysk provided us with a unique opportunity to purchase a commemorative silver coin dedicated to the 39th World Chess Olympiad held in Khanty-Mansiysk.
The symbols of the globe, a pawn, an arrow of a bow, elements of Ugra coat of arms and a fragment of a chessboard are depicted on the reverse side of the coin. There following inscriptions: “XXXIX World Chess Olympiad” and “Khanty-Mansiysk” can be found on the side of the coin.
