Description

In 2005 the Central Bank of Russia commenced a series of bi-metallic 10 Rubles coins paying tribute to the regions of the Russian Federation. According to the Russian Constitution, the Russian Federation consists of republics, krais, oblasts, cities of federal importance, an autonomous oblast, and autonomous okrugs, all of which are equal subjects of the Russian Federation. Three Russian cities of federal importance have a status of both city and separate federal subject. In 1993, there were 89 federal subjects listed. By 2008, the number of federal subjects had been decreased to 83 because of several mergers. In 2014, Sevastopol and the Republic of Crimea became the 84th and 85th federal subjects of Russia.

The coat of arms of Novosibirsk Oblast, the inscriptions along the rim divided by two dots: above RUSSIAN FEDERATION, below NOVOSIBIRSK OBLAST.

Novosibirsk Oblast is a federal subject of Russia (an oblast) located in southwestern Siberia. Its administrative and economic center is the city of Novosibirsk.

The armorial composition bears explicit reference to the coat of arms of Tsardom (Governorate) of Siberia which used to be a part of the Coat of Arms of the Russian Empire. The Imperial design was probably derived from the earlier symbol of the Tatars of Siberia and featured two sables supporting a crown, a bow and two arrows. Now the sables support korovai and salt-cellar. The korovai is a traditional Russian bread and symbol of hospitality.
