Soviet restrike Tsar gold 1898 10 ruble coin?


Recommended Posts


Correct, gold coins of Nikolay II period were restrike in Soviet time.  There are ways to determine this but one have to be very skilled in being able to see the differences in the portret.  It surprise me that NGC could spontaan place this information on the label. Most probably the owner of the coin has specifically asked to do this in order to raise the price.  Soviet restrikes are usually not more expensive than normal coins, so this case was rather exceptional
