Good day Theonna,


Welcome to coinpeople. I had to edit your post as the coinpeople forum requires you to be a forum member here and be on this forum for at least thirty days for buying / selling / trading. This is done so that others can get to know you better - unfortunately there are too much scammers, crooks out there so this is one of the ways to check. Also publishing your real name and number isn't a wise idea as they can possibly use it for bad purposes.


I've given it a check on various sources but it seems that it's not a very common coin. The National Bank of Ukraine reports that a mere 5000 coins were struck which further details can be read here http://www.bank.gov.ua/ENGL/Bank_coin/YUV_...sack/Mazepa.htm Your best chance might be to contact some of the big ebay sellers and see if they happened to have that particular coin in stock. It's going to be tough but best of luck to you.
