Marshal Zhukov Centenary Medal (Alternative issue).
Marshal Zhukov Centenary Medal (Alternative issue). Writing on
the reverse says "Great Son of the Soviet People. 1896-1996".
This is one of the "alternative medals" issued by the
Communist-run Congress of Peoples Deputies of the USSR -
legislative body of the Soviet Union that continues to operate
even now, years after Soviet Union's collapse! Naturally,
these medals are not approved by the President of Russia and
therefore have not become a part of the official award system
of modern Russia.
