Russian Gold Coins

Brief Notes on Russian History
Although a Russian dynasty was founded in 862 by the Vikings and became an important power, Russia came under Mongol rule from the thirteenth century until they were overthrown in the late fifteenth century by Ivan III. Under the later reigns of Ivan the Terrible, Peter the Great, and Catherine the Great, the Russian Empire was expanded greatly covering a large part of Eastern Europe and Northern Asia. The abdication of Tsar Nicholas II preceded the Russian (October) revolution in 1917, the Bolsheviks and the SDLP gained power, and the various states formed the Russian Socialist Federal Soviet Republic, which in 1922 under Lenin became the USSR, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. In 1991, a number of the republics broke away from the USSR, and the CIS or Commonwealth of Independent States was formed.

Russian Gold Coins
In earlier days, Russia issued gold kopeks, ducats, poltinas, and novodels. In more recent times, most of the gold coins have been roubles or multiples of roubles, including chervonetz which are equivalent to 10 roubles.
We give below the specifications of most of the more frequently encountered Russian gold coins, followed by a stock list of any we have for sale.
