Greetings:

 

 

I was not aware of this coin until recently - but instantly intrigued with Alexander II producing this coin honoring Alexander I.

 

If one were to do that, it seems an odd denomination for doing so.  The bust appears to be the same as that on the Borodino roubles.

 

Note:  I like coins with images of Tsars, so this in particular caught my interest.

 

Can anyone provide any thoughts or conjecture about the intentions with this coin?  Best - Dwight

Can we see it? I guess it's one of these: https://www.m-dv.ru/...d,29/types.html as a novodel?

That is the coin, thanks. There are like three varieties in Bitkin but i have not had the patience to try to discern the difference.  All are R1 or greater.  Again, thanks.
