Lenin souvenier medallion?


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I have an item here that I picked up in a thrift shop a while ago & wonder if anyone can tell me anything about it. I have attached two pictures of it. To me it looks as if it might be a souvenier that someone would buy if visiting Russia. On the reverse is what looks like a logo, as shown.

thanks for any help.

Hi Bill,

the author of bas-relif is soviet sculptor N.Sokolov

As far as I remember originally this medallion was minted by ЛДМ (Leningrad Mint).

Your medallion is made by this "Знар" manufacturer after ЛДМ piece (most likely as modern souvenir).

Cheers,

Nick
