Victoria, Penny (Young Head) Copper Fine

The copper Penny of Queen Victoria was issued between 1839 and 1860. It was a nice chunky copper coin, that was replaced by the thinner bronze Penny in 1860. We have this coin available in Fine, a grade that is better than they usually come. Because this coin was of such small value it tends to come up for sale in very used well circulated quality. These copper pennies are above average quality.

Russia (USSR), 1989 Rouble

This coin was issued under the USSR, it is the largest denomination that was actually used every day as money. It is dated 1989 and it is dated both on the reverse and on the edge of the coin. You have the hammer and sickle on one side and the denomination on the other side. The current catalogue price is $30.00 in mint state 60 and there is no price for this coin in mint state 63, which they are. It is a scarce coin, in much better condition than they usually come. We bought them right, so we are going to sell them right. Uncirculated it catalogues at £22.70. A tough coin to get, especially so choice.
