Located in the very heart of Europe, the Republic of Belarus is a country of wide plains, picturesque villages, ancient castles and monasteries, deep forests, scenic landscape and lots of lakes.  Since one-third of its territory is covered with forests where birches, oaks, maple and pine trees grow, Belarus possesses a rich diversity of fauna. Thanks to its unique history and rich cultural heritage, the country boasts hundreds of architectural monuments dating back to the 12th century.

It’s no wonder that modern collectible coins issued by Belarus basically highlight its rich wildlife, history and culture. The adorable Zodiac series of silver and gold coins is also worth mentioning.
