The National Bank of Georgia (NBG) has issued a 5 GEL (Georgian lari) silver collector coin, dedicated to the 100th anniversary of Constituent Assembly of the Democratic Republic of Georgia (Parliament).
The Constituent Assembly of Georgia was a national legislature of the Democratic Republic of Georgia which was elected in February 1919 to ratify the Act of Independence of Georgia and enact the Constitution of 1921.
The assembly remained active until the Soviet Russian military intervention brought Georgia’s three-year independence to an end in March 1921.
The coins are on sale starting today at the cash centre of the NBG, in the Money Museum in Kvareli and online.
The coin has been struck in Mennica Polska, in Poland. The price of one coin is 75 GEL (about $28.04/€24.65*).
The new coins picture different size rings which has colours of the former flag of Georgia (black, white and red) and symbolically represent the number of parliament members of the first Democratic Republic of Georgia.
The graphic designer of the new 5 GEL collector coin is Nita Gongadze.
