Russia 50 Kopeks and 1 Rouble  1921 and 1922
Russia 50 Kopeks and 1 Rouble 1921 and 1922

There are 100 kopeks in one rouble. These coins with the large star and hammer-and-sickle pattern were minted by the Russian Soviet Federated Socialist Republic (RSFSR), which came before the Union of Soviet Socialist Republic (USSR). The coins were minted only in 1921 and 1922. They are made of silver:

50 KOPEKS: 26 mm diameter, 0.289 troy ounces silver
1 ROUBLE: 32 mm diameter, 0.579 ounces silver

The Base Value (BV) of these coins accounts for some of their value. To compute BV, multiply the current price of silver by the silver content given above. For instance, according to kitco.com, the current price of silver is $19.95 US dollars per troy ounce (look it up, it changes every day), so the Base Value of a one rouble coin is 19.95 x 0.579 = $11.55.

The value of these coins comes from collector demand as well as Base Value. Here are some typical catalog prices:

50 KOPEKS
worn: BV + $0
average circulated: BV + $5
well preserved: BV + $20
fully uncirculated: BV + $50
coins dated 1921 are slightly more valuable than coins dated 1922

1 ROUBLE
worn: BV + $5
average circulated: BV + $10
well preserved: BV + $50
fully uncirculated: BV + $110

Coin: 16488 , Genre: Orthodox and Slavic
