    I've had this beauty in my collection for the past 15 or so years.  I do not see to many and it is a favorite from my post Soviet era medals.

    Rare opportunity to see in this section a medal that really belongs to the RF awarding system :whistle: 

    Although I don`t like this one.

    Looks like one of these copper-nickel babes (real one should be in silver)

    By these pictures it looked like unissued copper-nickel medals that was made by Mint in 1994.

    Initially they planned to make this medal in copper-nickel.

    But pretty soon they changed their mind to silver.

    But mint already made first portion of  copper-nickel medals. 

    Soon enought (thanks for the glorious democratic 90s) it was stollen (most likely by the mint staff).

    Then numbers were added (unprofessionaly) and here we are.

    So mine could be a real item, which was not awarded due to the change you specified?  What are the current values on the Silver and this other version on the collector market these days?
