The commemorative coin is dedicated to the capital of the Autonomous Republic of the Crimea, an administrative and cultural centre, the city of Simferopol (in Greek - city of common good). The city is situated in the Salhir River valley on the natural border between the mountainous and plain Crimea. The city development started in 1784, but a part of the valley where the city is located had been populated from the earliest times.
