On October 22, 2015, the Central Bank of the Russian Federation issued a silver three-ruble commemorative coin to honor the 10th anniversary of the Conference of the States Parties to the United Nations Convention Against Corruption. The timing of the coin’s release coincides with Russia’s hosting of the Conference’s sixth session, which will be held in Saint Petersburg, Russia on November 2-6, 2015. Limited to a mintage of 3,000 pieces, this .925 silver coin weighs 31 grams and is struck in Proof.
In the center, the two-headed eagle, which is the emblem of the Bank of Russia. Underneath the eagle is the inscription “Банк России” (Bank of Russia). The eagle is surrounded by a beaded circle. Between the beaded circle and the rim is the text ТРИ РУБЛЯ (three rubles) and 2015 Г[од]. In addition, along the rim of the coin is the coin’s metallic purity, represented as “AG 925”; “31,1” representing the coin’s weight; and the mark of the Saint Petersburg Mint.
The Earth’s Eastern and Western Hemispheres are depicted in low relief. Underneath are criss-crossing lines in the shape of an “X” or St. Andrew’s Cross. At the top of the coin are two inscriptions that read VI СЕССИЯ КОНФЕРЕНЦИИ СТРАН-УЧАСТНИКОВ КОНВЕНЦИИ ООН ПРОТИВ КОРРУПЦИИ and РОССИЯ 2015 (“The VI Session of the Conference of the States-Parties to the United Nations Convention Against Corruption” and “Russia 2015”).
