   Commemorative medals and jetons
Ru  En  Ua  

Commemorative medals and jetons usually were issued in honour of any events or dates. In most cases they were minted but sometimes were cast. As a rule such medals and jetons were made in the limited quantity. For example, coronation medals and jetons made of precious metals were quite rare as they were handed over only to the persons invited to celebration.
