Availability: In stock
SKU: FRU9989

This Uncirculated cupronickel 5 Rouble was issued by the Soviet Socialist Republic (USSR) in 1991. There are several interesting things about it; first, it shows the Russian State Bank Building in Moscow which, considering Russia was Communist at the time, is very unusual.
Secondly, this coin is in Uncirculated condition therefore it was struck for circulation or actual usage. Most commemorative Russian coins you see are in Proof condition and therefore struck for collectors. An actual circulating issue is much more difficult to find.
It is small crownsized and in Uncirculated condition and was the largest sized coin struck for circulation at the time. You have the Hammer and Sickle on the reverse with CCCP which is Russian for USSR.

Nice large Uncirculated cupronickel 5 Roubles from a country that no longer exists…

Picture of Hungary, 5 Pengo 1943 Aluminium Crownsize coin

Hungary, 5 Pengo 1943 Aluminium Crownsize coin

Not many crowns have been struck in Aluminium which makes this wartime Hungarian crown all the more unusual. It was originally struck in 1943 to commemorate the 75th Birthday of Admiral Horthy. He was Commander-in-Chief of the Austro-Hungarian Navy in 1917 and was regent of Hungary, acting on behalf of the absent King. During the Second World War, Hungary was part of the German alliance but in 1944 Horthy announced Hungary`s withdrawal from the war and was duly imprisoned by the Germans. He was released by the allies and he retired to Portugal where he died in 1957. In the 1950s the Hungarian Mint restruck this special Aluminium crown in prooflike condition and it is these we are able to offer now. This is the first group of these crowns that we`ve seen in years They are much more difficult to get than the catalogue suggests and at just £8.95 they are a good value for money!
