Alexander II, also known as Alexander the Liberator, was the Emperor of the Russian Empire from 1855 until 1881. He was also the King of Poland and the Grand Duke of Finland. His script monogram appears on coins of Russia and Finland. The date, size, and inscription are used to distinguish one country from the other. This page applies to Russian coins with denominations 1/4 kopek (polushka), 1/2 kopek (denga), and 1 kopek, as shown in the image below.
