The silver commemorative coin of Belarus minted in 2008 has the Sedov barque as its subject. The ship was originally German and came under the Russian sails in 1945 when Nazis capitulated. The vessel was used as an oceanic cargo ship for years; then she served as an oceanographic research vessel. Now she’s a sail training ship renamed over the Soviet explorer Georgy Sedov. The barque celebrated her 90th Anniversary in 2011. The image of the four-mast vessel is placed on the reverse side of the commemorative coin along with its name in Belarusian. The obverse shows the stunning hologram nautical wind rose against the background made as the relief map. The name of the issuing country and its emblem are placed at the top of the piece while the coin’s denomination (20 Belarusian rubles) is below.
