This coin commemorates the land in the forest-steppe zone of the Podolian Upland. Vinnytsia Oblast is famous for its numerous archeological, historical, architectural and urban monuments. This land is intimately associated with the Cossacks. It was in this land that the first Cossack units were formed, and the insurrectionary and haydamak movements gathered momentum. The oblast is rich in minerals and raw materials. It has 1,159 mineral deposits, including those of granite, kaolin, garnet, fluorite and phosphorite. The town of Khmilnyk boasts springs of healing mineral water with a high content of radon.
