Heroes of Cossack Age

The word Cossacks stands for ‘free men’ originally referring to groups of Slavic peasants, misfits and adventurers who migrated to the borders to escape the heavy hand of governments, serf owners and the tax collectors, and later started rendering military service. This series of unique Ukrainian coins pays tribute to the most outstanding Cossack leaders who cared deeply about their country’s well-being and are considered national heroes.
