Russian Coin which has been added to a chain. On the obverse there is a winged creature, possibly 2 but a mirror image of each other. In the centre of the obverse is a small shield with an unidentifiable image within in. There are also several characters/images below the shield at 6 o'clock but again these are unidentifiable. The reverse of the coin is very worn and barely readable. There appears to be a dotted ring around the circumference of the coin and then a wreath within that. The number 5 is legible just below 12 o'clock and there appears to be letting underneath that but it is illegible. Coin is 19mm in diameter and weighs 3g.
