The 75th Anniversary of the Victory of the Soviet People in the Great Patriotic War of 19411945 3-rouble coin struck at the Saint Petersburg Mint occupied the third place in the Unique Concept category. The coin sketch was also carried out by Anton Schablykin.

The Bank of Russia has put into circulation coins dedicated to jubilee dates dedicated to the Victory in the Great Patriotic war for many years already, said Anton Schablykin. Because a multitude of coins dedicated to the military topic has already been struck, it was quite difficult to find an original artistic solution. However, we have developed it.

In the upper part of the mirror surface of the coin discus, there is a stylized image of the Immortal Regiment, in the bottom, there are relief images of a veteran in the full officers uniform, a start with the Eternal fire, a laurel branch and a waving St. Georges band. Photographs depicted on the coin are relative, there is no direct portrait likeness with any real images in them. They are generalized characters of both people and their memory.   

According to Anton Schablykin, the concept of artistic presentation of the Immortal Regiment topic appeared at the very start of working upon the sketch.
