Completed Soviet 5 kopek collection 1924 - 1991


Recommended Posts

This was one heck of a challenge. Forked out enough money and I don't really want to remember how much this costed me. Not into varieties so I've left them out.


The last two coins that I needed was 1927 and 1969 5 kopek, which is interesting as they are semi key dates. The toughest 5 kopek coins are 1934, 1933, 1935 (old type), 1927, 1970, 1971 and 1990 M. Some key dates are in low grade - figured that if I buy the low grades first, I can always upgrade them later. Still struggle to find better ones.


Here are the two coins that I couldn't fit in my virtual coin album design.






The rest of the coins can be seen here:






I don't think I can duplicate this set - a rather difficult set. Now to complete the rest of the other Soviet coins, perhaps 50 kopek. I think I'm missing just one coin for this and it's NOT a key date either. You'll be surprised to find out a lot of Soviet coins from 1965 - 1975 are getting difficult to find all of a sudden despite what the catalog value says.
