Product Description

This colorful, beautiful and unique Eastern European banknote captures for posterity a pair of endangered wolves!

Sold out at the Mint!It's a true thrill to wildlife lovers when they catch a glimpse of the mythic wolf in the wild! Although they were held in high esteem for eons by native peoples because of their spirits, wolves have been eradicated throughout most their range in North America, partly by hunters for trophies, and partly by ranchers as pests. However, wolves have been making a comeback recently and have been reintroduced to several locations, including national parks. Wolves play an important role by preying on big game animals and helping to control their population, including eliminating aged and diseased animals. Though they hunt in packs, wolves do not view humans as prey.

The Pahonia
The Pahonia is an historical national symbol of Belarus. Pahonia was the official coat of arms of Belarus in 1918 and from 1991 to 1995. The heraldic shield features a red field with an armored knight on a white (silver) horse holding a silver sword in his right hand above his head. A silver shield hangs on the left shoulder of the charging knight, and a golden (yellow) Patriarchal cross appears on the shield. This White Knight is steeped in centuries of tradition, with its first recorded use occurring in 1366!
