5 Kopek 1915 BC

20 Kopek 1915 BC


10 Kopek 1916 (Osaka)



BC = Viktor Smirnov (1913-1917)


Year 1914 was the last year with mintmarks on imperial Russian coins. After it, there were only mintmasters(BC=VS) initials under the eagle. There was no real need for mintmarks in Russia, since the only mint was in Petrograd (Untill 1914 called Sankt Peterburg). There was another series of silver coins without mintmark in Russia: some of the 10 and 15 kopeks of 1916 were made in Osaka, Japan with no mintmasters initials either.

I have picked up a few nice examples of the 10,15 and 20 kopeks from 1914 and 15 lately

This is a 15 Kopek coin from the Russian Empire 1917. This is the last of the Imperial issues.
