The National Bank of the Republic of Abkhazia donated to the State Historical Museum a commemorative silver coin "75 Years of Victory" dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War.

The reverse of the coin features a photograph of the army photojournalist S. Korotkov entitled "Mother", which depicts an Abkhaz woman Marushcha Pachulia with a photograph of her son Alexei Arshba, who died heroically in a battle in Sevastopol in 1942.
