This series of five coins made of precious metals is dedicated to the brown bear. Brown bears are found in the Caucasus, on the Kamchatka peninsular, in Siberia and in the Maritime Territory of the Far East. A brown bear may be 2.5 metres long and weighs more than 300 kilograms. It is an omnivorous animal whose population is declining.
