These coins were produced by the National Bank of Ukraine in Kiev. Kiev is the capital city of Ukraine, and Archangel Michael is viewed as the protector of the city, as well as the estate of Ukraine. While this bank now serves Ukraine, it is housed in a building that used to house a central bank for the Soviet Union for decades. The modern National Bank of Ukraine was established in 1992.
