Chicken Kiev - Vlad the Dictator's image has appeared on Crimean coins commemorating his triumph in the 2014 Paralytic Games.
The new decimal denomination sees the Russian Zloty replace the old Ukrainian Shekel in a move reflecting the annexation of Crimea back to Mother Russia's evil back yard.
Putin's cherubic chops appear on the one Zloty coin, a name that means 'gold' in Slavic and Slavonic tongues and, entirely coincidentally, the name of a major UK police crime op about bent cops and other corrupt stuff.
Coin collectors have been slow to respond to the lure of the new issue with some numismaticists shunning the penny on account of bad karma surrounding Vlad.
Carpetbaggers meanwhile may be waiting for next week's much anticipated issue of new Crimean banknotes including the seriously over-hyped 138 Zloty note.
