The White House issued a collector's coin "Snake Island," dedicated to the Ukrainian army's resistance in the battles for the island

It was noted on the White House website.

As reported, the shipment of the coin will begin on September 30. The cost of the souvenir is $100.

Delivery to Ukraine and NATO countries is free.

20% of the profit from the coin sale will be used to help Ukrainian women and children.

The coin is the 34th in the "Global Historic Moments of American and World Presidencies" collection.

As stated, it is dedicated to Ukraine and has a certificate of authenticity with a serial number.

The coin comes with a velvet presentation case with a gold presidential seal.

The history of Ukrainian sailors and the seizure of Snake Island by russia is written in the coin's description. The famous phrase of one of the island's defenders, "russian warship, go f*ck yourself!" is written on the coin in English.

It should be reminded that the National Bank of Ukraine introduced the Peredova commemorative coin for Defender of Ukraine Day on October 12.


As reported by Rubryka, Ukrainian military personnel defending Snake Island were captured on February 24.

Before that, at the suggestion of the russian military to surrender, one of the border guards who defended Snake Island said the phrase, "Russian warship, go f*ck yourself!" This phrase has become a catchphrase.

Soon Ukraine will try to exchange prisoners of war and return them home.

As Rubryka later wrote, on April 13, Ukrainian anti-ship missiles "Neptune" hit the flagship of the Black Sea Fleet of the russian Federation, the missile cruiser "Moskva."

On June 27, Ukraine's defenders struck Snake Island, where russia's military equipment was concentrated. The Armed Forces of Ukraine made more than ten precise strikes on the positions of the russian troops on Snake Island.

On June 30, the russian invaders were forced to leave Snake Island after the Ukrainian defenders hit the island with a series of blows, including from the Ukrainian Bohdana howitzer.

On July 4, it became known that the Ukrainian flag was delivered to Snake Island.

As Rubryka reported, on July 7, photos and videos of the Ukrainian flag installation on the island appeared online.

Dozens of enemy equipment units were destroyed on Snake Island: the Ukrainian military "cleared" the island.
