This release from The Perth Mint’s Great Russian Minds series celebrates the 150th anniversary of the birth of Anton Chekhov, a giant of Russian literature who is regarded as the outstanding representative of the late 19th-century realist school.  Born in Taganrog on 29 January 1860, Chekhov is most famously remembered for four great plays - The Seagull, Uncle Vanya, Three Sisters and The Cherry Orchard – as well as more than 600 short-stories, many of which are considered masterpieces.
