Depicted on the reverse of the coin is the fine crafted relief image of an amazing hedgehog with a dazzling Swarovski crystal inlaid in its eye. The hedgehog is represented side view, above and below the image there are inscriptions denoting Latin and Belarusian name of hedgehog. Hedgehog is small and completely defenceless - it does not have the quick feet to avoid hazards or sharp teeth and no doubt would be constantly threatened, unless nature took care of its safety by providing this creature with needles that can hurt any animal that want to attack him. The hedgehog’s name comes from its peculiar hunting habits. The animal goes through hedges and other undergrowth searching for its favourite food that includes insects, worms, snails etc. As hedgehog moves through the hedges it utters pig-like grunts and thus, the name hedgehog originates. Valuable silver coin with awesome hedgehog would be a perfect gift for a best friend!
