On June 22, 2015, the Central Bank of Russia issued 3-rouble commemorative silver coins for the July SCO and BRICS summits in Ufa.
"These coins will be on sale at several commercial banks, primarily at Sberbank, in a few days," Andrei Samorodov of the Central Bank's press service said.
The coin entitled "A Meeting of the SCO Heads of States Council in Ufa" will be 39 mm in diameter. The front will show the coin's nominal value, the date of issuance and the embossed national emblem of the Russian Federation. The reverse side will have an embossed official emblem of the SCO above, colour images of the member states' flags in the middle, and below, a stylised seven-petal Kurai flower, which is part of Bashkortostan's national emblem and flag.
The coin's run will be limited to 1,500.
