Tane Posted June 26, 2005 Report Share Posted June 26, 2005 Composition: Silver 900/000 Weight: 10g Diameter: mm Mintmasters: АГ = Apolon Grasgov (1883-1899) ФЗ = Felix Zahleman (1899-1901) ЭБ = Elikum Babajants (1899, 1906-1913) AP = Alexander Redko (1901-1905) BC = Viktor Smirnov (1913-1917) These silver coins were minted in St.Petersburg from 1895 to 1914 and in Paris at 1896 and 1897. Two different portraits were used. The one pictured was used from 1895 until 1914, in 1914 there was a second type with lower relief. These coins, especially the ones made in 1800's are usually found in very low grade, often cleaned, and better examples may cost a lot more than any cataloque price would indicate. 1912 and 1913 B.C. are the most common coins of this series, and an uncirculated coin may be available for less than 50USD.
