Russian Coins

Saturday we cleaned out the garage, and I found a bunch of old souvenirs from my trips to Europe and Russia. I was describing some coins to my co-worker who is from Omsk (its in Russia), and he thought they sounded like the Olympic rubles. Which are rare, and may be worth a little something. He found a web-site for me which had images of the Olympic rubles, but they didn't look like the coins I had.

We were puzzled, but I am going to takes the coins to him tomorrow, and see if we can identify what they are. If it is something interesting I will post it here.
