Coin Story

The Siberian Tiger (Panthera tigris altaica) is the largest felid and ranks among the biggest land predators in the world. In the mid–twentieth century, as a result of among others some acts of war and excessive hunting, the Siberian tiger population fell to just a few dozens of representatives. In the early 50s of the 20th century a total ban on hunting was introduced, so that an increase in the population of wild animals was later observed. It is estimated that today in the wilderness there are from 400 to 500 Siberian Tigers. Most of them live in the eastern part of Russia (Primorsky Krai and Khabarovsk Krai) and the Russian–Chinese border.
