The Russian Gold Coins: Sizes and Designs

Russian Gold Coins are one of the most famous gold products in the precious metals industry. Their coinage history dates back from the mintage of gold kopeks, poltinas, ducats and novodels. During more recent years, the Russian Empire minted the Russian gold ruble coin and its multiples. These Russian Gold Coin were struck of .900 gold between 1898 and 1811, in four denominations of 15, 10, 7.5 (7 Roubles and 50 Kopeks) and 5 Roubles, with respective weights of 0.3734 oz., 0.2489 oz., 0.1867 oz. and 0.1244 oz. for the Gold Coins struck between 1895 and 1911. The 7.5 and 15 Roubles were minted only in 1897 and for this reason these Russian Gold Coins are extremely valuable. Another famous Gold Ruble is the Chervonetz – 10 Ruble Gold Russian Coin. These are the only gold coins produced during the USSR period and were issued three times. The original ones, manufactured in 1923 and 1925, have been melted while the coins produced between 1975 and 1982 can be commonly found today. This coin is considered the Russian version of the Austrian Ducat, being made of .2489 oz. of .900 pure gold. The value of Russian gold coins is derivative of their impressive history, making each Gold Ruble Coin truly special, being the last ones to be struck in the Tzarist period.

The Russian Ruble Gold Coins

Russian Ruble Gold Coins were minted during 1898 and 1911 and the most popular two denominations of them are the 5 and 10 Rubles. These Russian Gold coins were the official currency of the Empire for nearly 500 years until the new brass plated steel ruble was introduced. Moreover, these coins have been used for 25 years as a means of currency in the Soviet Union. Each Gold Ruble Coin features the Imperial Coat of Arms on its reverse, as well as the seal of His Tsarist Majesty - a shielded double eagle with the crowns representing Russia, Astrakhan and Kazan. On the reverse side of the coin is also engraved the coin’s denomination and the year of mintage. On the obverse side of the coin is the profile portrait of the last Tsar of Russia, Nicholas II from the dynastic House of Romanov, along with the coin’s legend in Russian. Imperial Russian Roubles Coins were minted at the Imperial Russian Mint in St. Petersburg.
