Russia 5, 10, and 25 Roubles (Fakes are possible)  1895 to 1897
Russia 5, 10, and 25 Roubles (Fakes are possible) 1895 to 1897

CoinQuest thanks Baldwin's in London for use of their photos of these extremely valuable coins:

5 ROUBLES: 1895 and 1896
10 ROUBLES: 1895 thru 1897
25 ROUBLES: 1896 only

These coins are worth tens of thousands of US dollars, or hundreds of thousands of US dollars. To qualify for these prices, coins must be dated as shown above and look like our picture, with Nicholas II on the front and an encircled imperial eagle on the back.

Unfortunately for requester Moe, his coin is a fake -- one of many such fakes. The images below show a genuine 10 roubles from Baldwin's and the counterfeit 10 roubles from Moe. There are clear differences in pattern.


It could be that Moe's fake coin is made of gold. Take it to a jeweler and have it tested. If it is gold, it is worth its weight in precious metal. If it is not gold, it is a good conversation piece.

Coin: 20648 , Genre: Orthodox and Slavic
