Alexey Mikhailovich Novodel Rouble

Recommended Posts

Hello -

 

I was scanning things and came across this coin.  It is very interesting and a very old novodel.  Does anyone have any thoughts on this coin?  Experiences or does anyone have images to share.  Any proud owners?  Novodels interest me.  And for one to be so old.    Seems odd and even a little mysterious.  Thanks much.

Hello 

I have 2 such roubles in my collection: one silver and one copper. The copper one is most rare. It is not described in most of the catalogs. I like these coins very much.

Very outstanding  items indeed :art:  With the slight wear they show novodels don't come to mind. Did these yefimki circulate?

Even called Novodels, those coins were made most probably in Ekatherina II period. So wear is normal for them. Novodels were prohibited to make in 1890.  At that time most of the original stamps were  destroyed.

I do not think those were yefimki. Novodels were stamped on new blanks

How to explain the wear? Did these rubles go into circulation, maybe as pyatak and ruble?

From what I seen many show wear.  Beautiful!   Was wondering about age so this looks like Catherine II.  Very interesting.  thanks and congrats
