The Battle of Kursk was one of the key battles of WWII. It was a series of battles between the Soviet and German armies and remains the largest tank battle in history. The symbol of the battle was a Soviet tank, the T34. Thanks to the tank’s effective design the Red Army obtained a decisive victory. The commemorative medal "Kursk–1943" was minted by the T34. Ran over by the tank belt, the massive silver prism’s destruction is displayed on the reverse side of the medal. The text on the obverse reads: "KYPCK 1943 KURSK". The design of the wooden box for the medal reflects the authentic military boxes used by German forces during WWII. Inside each box is a photo documentation about the creation of the project.
