From today a new 2-hryvnia coin appears in circulation. Mikhail Sergeyevich Grushevskiy is depicted on it.

National Bank of Ukraine has dated an issue of the coin for the 150th anniversary of this outstanding Ukrainian politician. A circulation of this coin amounts to 25 thousand pieces. Collectors and just interested people can buy it for about 30 hryvnias.

Michael Grushevskiy is not accidentally honored to be depicted on the coins. He occupies an important place in the history of Ukrainian development and its formation as an independent country. Grushevskiy is often called the first President of Ukraine because he was elected as the Chairman of the Central Rada of Ukrainian People’s Republic in 1917.
