On 8 September 2007, a monument to the Student "Tail," a gift to the city from the publisher and entrepreneur Igor Zolotov, was been opened in Tula. This is a small Dragon with a record book in its paws, which looks in surprise at its missing tail, because the Dragon student shall have no tails. It is cast from ninety-one lucky nickels, which Tula students put under their heel when passing exams. The monument to the tail is a wonderful talisman for students. Before the exam session, students come to see the "tailless" Dragon and put a nickel, believing in the successful passing of the exam session. Souvenirs with the image of the Dragon-student may be purchased in the "Zolotov Museum Shop in Tula."
