This coin is dedicated to the Bicentenary of Russia’s Victory in the Patriotic War of 1812.

Napoleon’s ultimately disastrous invasion of the Russian Empire in 1812 is one of the most famous military campaigns in modern history. On 24 June 1812, Napoleon and his Grand Armee crossed the river Neiman in Western Russia and began marching towards Moscow with some 690,000 men. By the time the Armee had retreated from Russia less than six months later only tens of thousands of soldiers remained.

Three quarters of Moscow lay in smoldering ruins and hundreds of thousands of Russians had been killed, but Napoleon and his great Empire had been forced to retreat. It was a defeat that ultimately proved that Europe’s previously undefeated ‘military genius’ could indeed be crushed, albeit at a huge cost.

The reverse features an image of the Triumphal Arch in Moscow, and the inscription: "ОТЕЧЕСТВЕННАЯ ВОЙНА 1812 ГОДА" (THE PATRIOTIC WAR OF 1812). The obverse has "БАНК РОССИИ" (BANK OF RUSSIA), the year date of issue, and the stylized images of a bay tree and oak twigs respectively, as well as the mint mark and the denomination "10 РУБЛЕЙ" (10 ROUBLES). Inside the element "0" is a security element in the form of the figure "10" and the inscription "РУБ" (RUB), only visible when changing the angle of vision.
