Russia (USSR), 1 Rouble (Sergey Prokofiev 100th Anniversary) Unc

In 1991 the USSR or CCCP as they spell it in Russian, issued a special commemorative One Rouble. It was to honour the 100th birthday of Sergey Prokofiev the Russian composer. You have the bust of Prokofiev on one side and the Russian arms with the Hammer and Sickle on the other side. Of course now Russia is no longer the USSR and thus the coins no longer carry this symbol. These 1 Roubles are in Uncirculated condition, which in many cases is rarer than the proofs. Now it is almost impossible to find USSR coins in Russia, it is something that they would prefer to forget.

Russia_Scarce_1989_Rouble_Choice_Obv

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.

Russia (USSR), Archangel Michael Cathedral, 5 Roubles, 1991. Unc

It is most unusual to have a Russian commemorative 5 Rouble in Uncirculated condition, as most of the coins we see are in Proof. This is a coin that was actually struck for circulation and real usage, not one for collectors only. It is a 5 Rouble issued under the USSR or Russia, in 1991 for the Cathedral of the Archangel Michael in Moscow. You have the Cathedral on one side and the hammer and sickle with CCCP or USSR, as we know it, on the other side. These 5 Roubles are almost crownsized and when they were issued you were not allowed to take them out of the country.
