I have a Russian coin/medal that I cannot find anywhere. It has on one side has the E monogram of Catherine the great with the laurel and palm wreath partially surrounding it and the crown above. The reverse side shows, what looks like, an island/land with the sun rising or setting over it. There are clouds on either side of the suns rays with a banner joining them with a ram on it and the numeral XXI. There is Russian writing below the scene with a date 1793.

 

It has no denomination or mint mark on it.

 

Any ideas what it is?

Medal on 64-th Anniversary of Birth of Catherine II. By Maria Feodorovna. Diakov 233.1, but there it is listed in silver only. Copper pieces could be struck at later time.

Thank you so much.

Do you have a web address where I can view the silver medal?
