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…

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.

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, 5 Roubles 1990, St. Petersburg Palace, Uncirculated.

Russia, 5 Roubles 1990, St. Petersburg Palace, Uncirculated. Russian commemoratives in Uncirculated condition are more difficult to find for collectors than Proofs. The Proofs were exported as a source of hard currency and therefore were put away, the Uncirculated coins were meant to circulate and most of them did just that. We have a number of the Russian 5 rouble commemorative coins, issued in 1990 featuring St. Petersburg Palace, issued under the USSR in Uncirculated condition. I ask you to seriously consider these. They are more difficult to find than the Proof coins and is now over 27 years old.
