This coin commemorates the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, on the Crimean peninsula in southern Ukraine. The peninsula is washed by the Black and Azov seas, and is separated from mainland Ukraine by Lake Sivash. Crimea has enormous recreational potential because it is a natural tourist center and has unique landscapes. It has many places of archaeological, historical, cultural and architectural interest. The peninsula has been home to many peoples, who have created its current ethnic origin. These include Ukrainians, Crimean Tatars, Russians, Greeks, Armenians and other ethnic and ethno-denominational groups. In 2014, Crimea was brazenly occupied by Russia. Russia's claim to have annexed Crimea is not recognized by Ukraine and the international community, which considers the peninsula to be temporarily occupied territory.
