This is a crudely struck and very large copper coin, varying in weight from about 45 grams to 55 grams. The date on this coin is encircled by a wreath and a double headed eagle.

During the reign of Catherine the Great from 1763-1796, Russia issued very large copper coins. These would have served as an important denomination in everyday transactions of the era.  The two headed eagle symbolizes Russia's geographical location in the middle of Europe and Asia.  The two heads are needed to watch over the two continents to protect Russia's people.

Impressive, a special coin

By Ancestor Researcher

from Edmonton, Alberta

This coin is special to the "Germans from Russia" whose ancestors were invited by Catherine the Great to settle in Russia (in may case the Ukraine) This coin represents history to me. A coin really big in size and very impressive. One question I have: the attached Historical Information Sheet states the reign of Catherine the Great as of 1763 - 1796. Should that not be 1762? or is my history incorrect?

Interesting Coin

By Coin Junky

from Ontario

Bronze Reviewer

I was very happy with the coin I recieved. You don't realize how large this coin really is until you have it in your hand. A Very interesting coin, and well presented with its case and Historical information sheet. The coin reminds me of ancient Greek and Roman coins I collect by the way its struck.
