Alexander Column anyone?

St Petersburg Mint has recently struck a commemorative 25 ruble coin (5 ounce silver) commemorating the Alexander Column.

 

I have personally seen the column in real life and was simply awed over the beauty and the scale of the monument. This is one of the reason why I bought this commemorative ruble:

There is one other commemorative coin that features the column:

Those who have never seen what the column is like, here are some decent photos on google: http://images.google.com.au/images?hl=en&a...le&resnum=4

 

Just amazing.

Just amazing.

 

I'm actually planning to buy the new coin - for exactly the same reasons you mentioned. I really like the Column and the Palace Square and can't get enough of them, even though I usually get to see them at least once a week. Especially on a nice sunny day the atmosphere over there is something special.

 

It's just the price of the coin... Maybe I could survive a few months without eating? :ninja:
