Russia marks annexation of Crimea with coin collection

Posted: Updated:
RUSSIA - Russia is marking Vladimir Putin’s annexation of Crimea with a series of commemorative coins.

A foundry in the Ural Mountains is producing the 25-piece gold and silver plated collection.  The coins feature President Putin’s face on one side and a map of the Crimean peninsula on the other.  

As you can see, they're bigger than your average coin, weighing one kilogram each.  So far, there's been no word on their value.
