The Property Management Department of the President of the Russian Federation has announced that it will offer a series of collectible souvenirs marking the 400th anniversary of the Romanov dynasty in 2013.

The medals are made of silver and gold plated. Each medal depicts the portrait of a sovereign of the Romanov dynasty on the face, and the coat-of-arms on the reverse. The set of 20 medals is packaged in a box of polished mahogany. All sets are numbered and each has its own certificate. They are currently for sale at museum shops in the Moscow Kremlin. Price: 175,000 rubles ($5,700 USD).
