Russian Trial coin?


Recommended Posts

I think it might be somekind of a fantasy issue. How much did you pay for it? Are you sure it is made of Gold? Does it really weigh 15,5 gramms? Where did you buy it?

OH lol no, it's definately not gold. I am suspecting that it's nickel-bronze or some kind of alloy, but I definately never ever seen similar like this.


It is actually two different planchets, so they are both one-sided.


Well I don't know, if it is really a fantasy issue, but it looks too horribly similar to the official one that is issued later. All details like the Kremlin and the details of the angel...


All I get from the seller is that he / she got it from some Moscow coin dealers... so I don't know if that helps. :ninja:

Okay. I think it can't be anything "real". Since people often don't know russian coins too well, it is easy to make such coins and sell them for big $$.

Hehehe, well I paid less than 100USD, so I am quite happy. I was almost prepared to blow off parts of my collections to get it.


Well I don't know if it is a genuine trial coin or not, but who knows. :ninja: It even has the MMD mintmark on it to make it look horribly similar to the official coin.


*geez, it's so odd!!! My russian coins have so many stories to tell!!!*
