Russia Rouble  1832 to 1858
Russia Rouble 1832 to 1858

Wow. What a great coin! The image that Milen sent us comes from CoinArchives.com (a terrific web site) from an auction run by Baldwin's, a highly respected numismatic (coin collecting) house in London. CoinQuest thanks Baldwin's for use of their coin image.

These old Russian roubles are quite valuable, but what makes Baldwin's coin remarkable is its superb condition. It is essentially uncirculated, kept in a collection from the time it left the Russian mint. Milen's coin has a hole in it. This damage renders Milen's coin essentially valueless.

The catalogs call out values as follows. All dates run approximately the same, with a few exceptions noted below.

worn: $40 US dollars approximate catalog values
average circulated: $70
well preserved: $200
fully uncirculated (like the photo): $500
coins dated before 1832 are more rare; multiply these values by two
coins dated 1839 are extremely rare; one specimen in well preserved condition sold for $17,250 in May 2006. It would be worth even more today.

Remember that these are catalog values. Actual values will be lower, as explained on our Terminology page.

Coin: 7515 , Genre: Orthodox and Slavic

Comments

Was this coin heavily counterfeited? And if so is there a good way to determine just by seeing the picture? - ted
I cannot find any mentions of any forgeries of this coin series. The 1839 date is very rare and would be a good candidate, but even this coin only shows up in the literature once in a while in the shape of a genuine specimen. With this being said, new counterfeits are constantly made, so it can't be ruled out that there are fakes of these coins out there which haven't yet been picked up on by the numismatic community. - CoinQuest (Chris)
