Mint and Collector Sets: USSR and new Russia - to evaluate and current prices


Recommended Posts

Saw the topic for 2002 mint set - very nice!

I haven't got many coins of the new Russia (or last days of USSR), but I have a few sets and I am wondering,
if anyone can help, with their values:

1) Typical 1974 set of USSR coins - Leningrad mint (green paper cover, plastic casing, red incert)
my guess: $80 (example: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Russia-USSR-1974-Green-Mint-Set-of-9-Coins-Prooflike-/380616941155?pt=US_World_Coins&hash=item589e899e63&nma=true&si=gGcjDlxPYJkQZLUWufGf7yUW4rc%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557#ht_366wt_1107)

2) Typical 1977 set of USSR coins - Leningrad mint (yellow paper cover, plastic casing, red incert)
my guess: $25 (example: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Russia-Mint-Set-1977-MS-18-9-Coins-/271155095722?pt=US_World_Coins&hash=item3f221a68aa#ht_62wt_1107)

3) Typical 1991 set of USSR coins - Leningrad mint (paper cover, plastic casing)

my guess: $35 (example:http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/1991-USSR-Russia-Proof-Set-Leningrad-Mint-Last-9-Coins-Token-of-Old-Soviet-Union-/261248598975?pt=US_World_Coins&hash=item3cd3a143bf#ht_1580wt_1385)

4) 50 years jubilee of October revolt (1917-1967): 10, 15, 20, 50 kopecks and 1 rouble, plus Leningrad mint jetton.

my guess: $25 (example: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Russia-USSR-Mint-Set-of-Jubilee-50-Years-of-October-Revolution-5-Coins-1967-/181173140512?pt=US_World_Coins&hash=item2a2ec2bc20#ht_239wt_869)

5) Last coins of the Soviet Union - 1989 set (in plastic casing) released in 1996 by SSCA
My guess: $50 (example: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/1989-RUSSIA-USSR-CCCP-MINT-PROOF-LIKE-SET-LAST-COINS-OF-SOVIET-UNION-KREMLIN-/230993540080?pt=US_World_Coins&hash=item35c849b3f0#ht_891wt_1107)

6) Culture and Tradition of Russia - set with descriptions. Coins are in Proof. All - USSR apart from two 1992 - Bank of Russia.

- 1 rouble 1990 - Zhukov

- 3 roubles 1992 - Defence of Democracy (looks slightly bigger)

My guess: $120 (http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Russia-set-from-10-coins-1988-92-Culture-and-Tradition-of-Russia-/181168195382?pt=US_World_Coins&hash=item2a2e774736)

1, 2, 3, 5, 10, 15, 20, 50 kopecks, 1 rouble and two jetton;

my guess: $35 (example: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/USSR-full-coins-set-1991-BUNC-/181175083066?pt=US_World_Coins&hash=item2a2ee0603a#ht_1441wt_1107)

8) "The first coins of the Russian Republic" 1992 set - released on December 1 1991, without the Hammer and Sickle. Yellow paper cover, soft plastic, 6 coins, no jetton.
The eagle looks stressed (nothing to hold on to and no crowns). Set includes:
1, 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 roubles (the last two bi-metal)

my guess: $25 (http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/NRR-1992-New-Russian-Republic-Proof-Set-1st-6-Roubles-Coins-of-the-Federation-/251306388452?pt=US_World_Coins&hash=item3a83072be4)

St Petersburg mint set, includes: 1, 5, 10, 50 kopecks, 1, 2, 5 roubles

my guess: $50 (example: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Russland-Coin-Set-KMS-1997-im-Original-Folder-/390617722066?pt=M%C3%BCnzen_Medaillen&hash=item5af2a16cd2&nma=true&si=gGcjDlxPYJkQZLUWufGf7yUW4rc%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557#ht_343wt_1107)

10) 2004 Set of "test" coins: 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50 cents (with pseudo Russian cote or arms) and 1, 2 Euro (with Nicholas II portrait)

There are 1.000 folder with a diferent obverse designs.

11) 2004 Set of "test" coins: 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50 cents and 1, 2 Euro (all with pseudo Russian cote or arms)

I didn't see any sold on e-Bay for a while. Here are some reference: (http://ret001qm.eresmas.net/eu-ingle.htm)



The set was issued on october 2004. The folder have a mistake, says: "patetrns". The one Euro coin are rotated 90º, the other coins have medal alingment. The reverse of the coins are the same of the coins issued for Siberia.
* BU with 8 coins. 7.000 sets.


Which sets would you recommend to keep?

1974 set can be up to a thousand or more because of 20 kop variant

Have an unrelated question. Does everyone such a small allowance for the images? Example: You have used 1.18MB of 2.93MB

I just had to clean up some of my images, which is a shame... As some of my older topics don't have illustrations now.

yes. old years nobody cared about rare variants so much ( some people did) because of not having imternet and real communications then

That variant is a big IF. I don't believe it has the rare 3 kopecks reverse on it. Here is a pic:
