Coins from the Hermitage Exhibit

Recommended Posts

One of our colleagues in Russia went to the Hermitage Coin Exhibit in St Petersburg the other week and made some pictures available.

I'll try to re-post them here. If you read Russian, you may want to visit the actual topic:

Not sure if there will be anymore images. I'll add to this, if that will be the case... Most of these coins are very impressive! :)

Just as interesting as your pictures from Smithsonian! That was my reaction, when I saw your pictures of some GM collection coins from 2003... 

This topics rings in unison with this one: http://coins.su/forum/topic/111960-lyubitelskie-i-drugie-fotografii-redkih-monet-s-vystavok-ili-znamenityh-kollektsii/

Now, can I ask you guys, perhaps, some silly questions, as I am not into gold. 

What is this eagle munching on?  :)

Why is it also wearing tags on its legs?

And what is the significance of L.L. under it (one can also se D.L. under the gold eagle or single L. under St.Andrew)?

This brings back memories of a nice trip to DC to visit my brother.  I discovered the exhibit by chance, in November 2003, as the museum was closing for the day.  I had to rush the photos, (leaving early the next morning) .  My first digital camera was a Canon G1, and light was poor at the exhibit, and obviously a flash would not work thru the glass.   handheld with out a tripod explains the poor focus of those pics.  Times sure have changed, and the typical phone has a camera 10 times sharper, even in low light.   I looked at my archive, and found one that didnt make those photos in your link..  

Thank you for sharing all those great images of coins "in the wild"!!

Thank you all for positive comments! These are the most interesting coins to see... Petty, I didn't see any 2 / 5 kopecks of Elezabeth (my favs), but these coppers are wonderful to see!
