This coin commemorates Khmelnytskyi Oblast, which lies in the south-west of the East European Plain in two geographical regions: forest steppe and mixed forest. Ancient historical and archeological monuments, picturesque landscapes, and a mild, wholesome climate are uniquely combined in Khmelnytskyi Oblast. The region is known for its Kamianets-Podilskyi Castle, Medzhybizh Fortress, Starokostiantyniv Castle, Dniester and Smotrych Canyons, as well as the Bakota Cave Monastery. The oblast boasts over 3,000 rivers and streams, the largest of which are the Dniester, Southern Bug, Horyn, Sluch, Zbruch, and Smotrych. It has over 300 deposits with 26 varieties of mineral resources, and over 60 springs with fresh, mineral and table waters. It also produces many goods that are popular in Ukraine and abroad, and has established trade relations with many countries.
