Picture of Romania, Tennis Oly Bi-metallic Piedfort

Romania, Tennis Oly Bi-metallic Piedfort

At this time of year tennis seems to be on many British people’s minds, what with Wimbledon and all. So I found a group of Rare patterns issued for tennis for the 1996 Olympics held in Atlanta, Georgia in the United States. They only made 125 pieces in each metal and thickness. So these are some of the rarest Olympic coins you will ever see. The type on offer here is the Bi-Metallic Piedfort. Each coin is full crownsized and struck in proof condition. They are struck at one of the oldest mints in the world in Romania, which has been in business for centuries and the quality is outstanding. An outstanding feature is the denomination, 100 Lei, is on the edge, so as not to detract from the design of the coin.

Picture of Romania, Wartime Silver 500 Lei

Romania, Wartime Silver 500 Lei

During World War II Romania issued this silver 500 Lei for just one year 1944. Well in fact the last coins they issued was in 1947. King Mihai I is on the obverse with the crowned coat of arms on the reverse. It is most unusual to have silver coins struck during the War. These large silver coins are in Extremely Fine condition but someone has wiped them so there are faint hairlines showing. They still look nice, but the average collector wouldn’t see the difference. World War II, silver, only issued for one year and in nice condition, what more could you want?

Russia_1r_Borodino_Proof_Obv

Russia (USSR), 1 Rouble (Battle of Borodino), 1987 Proof

These cupronickel 1 Roubles of Russia were issued in 1987 when it was known as CCCP or USSR, Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, shortly after their break up. These are much more difficult to find than most dealers realise. We know because we have sold quantities back to Russia. This 1987 1 Rouble was issued for the 175th Anniversary of the Battle of Borodino. Don't miss out, they are priced right and much more difficult to find than the catalogues indicate.

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.

3_Roubles_Armenian_Earthquake_Mountains_Burning_Candle_obv

Russia (USSR), 3 Roubles (Armenian Earthquake - Mountains & Burning Candle) 1989

Because most of the Russian coins were sold only for foreign currency, they tend not to be found in Russia.

Supply is very limited.

Russia_USSR_5 Roubles_1990_Urspenki_Cathedral_CN_obv

Russia (USSR), 5 Roubles 1990 Urspenki Cathedral CN

We have offered Russian commemorative coins a number of times in Proof condition and they look great in Proof. But, it is the Uncirculated coins that are more difficult to find for collectors. 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 small number of these 1990 5 Roubles Russian commemorative coins issued under the USSR in Uncirculated condition and I ask you to seriously consider these. They feature the Upenski Cathedral and Krause do not even show a photograph. They are more difficult to find than the Proof coins and most of these are about 30 years old.

Picture of Russia, Alexander I Patina 1825 Pewter

Russia, Alexander I Patina 1825 Pewter

This outstnading Alexander I 1825 ‘Rouble’ is from ‘The Imperial Russian Patina Collection’ and is struck in Pewter. This looks like silver but is much harder to strike, so the minters don’t use it all that much. A Patina is a retro-pattern to show what a Russian Crown or Rouble might have looked like at the time, had they been struck. These are top quality, extremely well engraved pieces, crownsized and struck in Proof Pewter. Forget what a piece like this would normally sell for, you can have this superb Alexander I 1825 ‘Rouble’for an excellent price.

Prokofiev_1_Rub_Unc_obv

Russia, Prokofiev 1 Rub 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.

Picture of Russia, wire money, Silver 1689-1725

Russia, wire money, Silver 1689-1725

These Russian Silver coins of Peter the Great were actually made by rolling out a thin wire of silver and then hammering out the design on them by hand. The value was standardized by the Reform Act of 1535. You have a horseman on the reverse and a legend in old Russian on the reverse. They are tiny silver coins with the denomination of Polushka and they were literally made from a piece of silver wire. They date from about 1700 and are a most unusual coin to have in your collection. Hundreds of years old and something your friends would probably never seen before. An actual coin struck from a piece of wire although it is silver wire
