In 2002 the Central Bank of the Russian Federation began an annual program that each year commemorates some of their historical towns on bi-metallic 10 Ruble coins. The coins picture the city and its arms on one side and has the standard Russian 10 Ruble obverse on the other. Unlike a lot of coin programs throughout the world there is no set regularity to the number of coins released each year in this series, with some years seeing 4 coins issued and other years only 3.
Belgorod is a city located in the south of European Russia, the capital of the Belgorod region. The city stands on the banks of the Seversky Donets River.
The first time a settlement on the present Belgorod territory was mentioned in 1237. The village was completely destroyed during Batu Khan’s invasion in the Russian land. It was founded again in 1596 (the official foundation date of Belgorod) by order of Tsar Feodor I Ioannovich.
It was a fortress on the southern border of Russia defending the country from the Crimean Tatars’ raids. Later, the border of Russia moved to the south and the fortress lost its military importance. The area became the part of Kursk guberniya of the Russian Empire.
