On October 18, 2018, the National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) issued a commemorative two-sided coin valued at 5 hryvnia (UAH) dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Kobzar Chorus, to which both the Ukrainian Bandurist Chorus of North America and National Bandurist Chorus of Ukraine trace their origins.

 

The coin was presented by the National Bank of Ukraine to both ensembles on Monday, October 22, 2018 at their historic joint concert in Kyiv at the Ivan Franko National Academic Theater to a capacity audience.

 

Designed by Volodymyr Taran, Oleksandr Kharuk, Serhii Kharuk, and engraved by Volodymyr Atamanchuk.

 

The coin is packaged into a commemorative booklet and the UBC has a limited collection available to purchase for $25.  All proceeds benefit the UBC@100 Legacy Fund.
