A brief annotation
The coin's design concept illustrates the history of nuclear testing. The stylized image of a nuclear explosion in the form of a mushroom consists of two parts. The left part embodies the history of nuclear tests and is made in the form of fragments symbolizing the lives lost and broken human destinies. The right part is made in the form of a stylized image of a dry tree as a symbol of the affected nature. The image of a green leaf in the dried crown of a tree is a sign of rebirth and hope.
