WWII years left an indelible mark on the city Yelnya. Twice the city was subjected to occupation by the soldiers of the enemy countries.
The first occupation took place in July, forty-first and lasted just over a month. However, after a short time, in October, forty-one of Hitler's army again captured Yelnya. The second seizure lasted two years. People have shown courage and heroism. Civilians and Soviet troops in every way tried to confront the enemy, even in very difficult times.
For this, it was decided to add to the list of Yelnya Cities of Military Glory and assign the title of the same name in 2007.
In the center - the denomination of the coin "10 РУБЛЕЙ". Inside of the figure "0" - hidden, visible by turns on changing angle of view of the image numbers "10" and the inscription "РУБ".
