The commemorative coin is dedicated to the city of Zbarazh located on the Hnizna-river (Dniester-river basin) in Ternopil Oblast. It was mentioned for the first time under 1211, when it formed a part of the principality of Galicia (Halych)-Volhynia and was one of the most fortified centres of the local appanage principalities. The city also became well-known owing to the events in the period of the liberation war of the Ukrainian people of 1648-1654.
