Ukraine commemorated the 50th Anniversary of the founding of the United Nations with this 38.6mm copper-nickel 200,000 Karbovantsiv coin. The coin is dated 1995, which is the anniversary year, but was not issued until March 1996. The attractive coin was struck at the British Royal Mint as Ukraine had not yet established its own mint. The coin features a globe of national flags surrounding the United Nations 50th Anniversary emblem and the legend “NATIONS UNITED FOR PEACE” in English and Ukrainian. The obverse depicts Ukraine national emblem. The coin has a mintage of just 100,000 pieces and is Brilliant Uncirculated.
