The Russian Federation Series


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I collect coins from Russia including circulation coins and Commemorative coins

Until now I have known that there were 1 and 3 and 5 CoperNickel Commemorative coins and also 2 and 10 roubles (bimetalic coin), Since the 2 roubles and 10 roubles coins were and still are in circulation are they also called Commemorative coins?


I know that there are 10 BM coins still in production and the Bank of Russia produce each year some coins. about the 2 Roubles I havn't seen more productions, Is there any reason why? or maybe I missed some of the 2 Roubles productionm and they still producing 2 roubles (not the regular) in Bank of Russia?


Can someone tell me how many 2 roubles coins ("Commemorative") are there? and How many 10 Bi Metalic Roubles Commemorative are there also?

The 2 Rouble have a regular circulation coin as you can see here:



What is the regular circulation coin of 10 Rouble?


Last Question ;) (topic)

The Bank of Russia have a series called:The Russian Federation Series being Russia a Fedretion itself what does it mean The Russian Federation , I know of Russia being devided into regions (Federal regions) Can one call a federal region a federation? or maybe the series is about the regions and since they are in Russia the series called The Russian Federation Series. If thats true - they can call all the series The Russian Federation Series - since all coins are dealing with Russia itself ;)

I have just wanted to arrange my coins with a good reference with information about the coins and the subject on each one of them, Since I didn't understand the meaning of the series name :ninja: I have asked the question above. (Should I collect 10 Roubles Coins by series?)


Any help on any of my questions would help me alot

Thank you all in advanced

Hi TQ, most of the mintage figures of the commemorative rubles are actually in the Central Bank of Russia. It's indeed strange why commemorative coins of 1 ruble and 2 rubles were made from 1999 to 2001 and why there were no 5 ruble commemorative coins :ninja: Might be something that was going on in the mints at that time. I'm sure you have seen my site here: http://www.gxseries.com/numis/rus_new_type/1992_2007.htm I'm just missing a few more coins and that's it.
