For those of you with an interest in Volkovysk, I just received the notice
below >from the weekly newsletter >from the Belarus Embassy in Washington, DC:

National Bank Launches Memorable Coins Dedicated to the City of Volkovysk

The National Bank of Belarus (NBB) put into circulation on October 31 new
silver and copper-nickel memorable coins dedicated to the City of Volkovysk.

The bank had 2,000 ?proof? quality silver coins and 2,000 ?proof-like?
quality copper-nickel coins minted in Warsaw, Poland.

The head of the coin pictures a raised impression of Belarus? State Emblem
circled by a geometrical ornament. Below the image of the State Emblem is
the standard of alloy (for silver coins) and mint year. The tail of the
coins features the emblem of the city of Volkovysk. In the middle of the
coin there is an inscription ?1000 year?, and below there is a panorama of
the city.
