This coin commemorates Kharkiv Oblast, an area that lies in north-eastern Ukraine. A center of higher education and science, the oblast is also one of Ukraine’s largest industrial, economic and cultural regions. The region’s advantageous economic and geographical location encouraged the development of power, electrical, transport and agricultural engineering, and metalworking. The products of Kharkiv mechanical engineering plants have achieved international recognition. These include the output of Kharkiv Tractor Plant, Kharkiv Tractor Engine Plant, the State Aircraft Factory, and the Self-Propelled Chassis Factory. The oblast is rich in mineral resources, such as gas, oil, black and brown coal, rock salt, phosphates, ochre, clay, sands, limestones, and chalkstones. The region’s high-yielding black soils and favorable climate have earned it an important place in Ukraine’s production of commodity grain, important technical agricultural crops, sheep breeding and gardening.
