Russian Silver - 10 Kopecks (1910)

I have shared silver coins from all kinds of countries, but never from one of the biggest, a country that's not so popular these days... Russia!

The one I will be sharing today is the smallest Russian piece in my possession, and a rather old one, a 10 kopecks from 1910!

These little beauties were minted from 1867 to 1914 by the russian empire, just a couple years before Russia started taking a more... socialist approach 🤣.. You know, Lenin etc etc.

On the front side we have a bad ass two-headed imperial eagle, the coat of arms of the time, which is also in use today.

The reverse side is pretty plain, featuring a crown, the coin value and the minting date.

This is a really light and small coin, just 1.8 g heavy. And only 0.500 silver, so just 0.9 g silver in it.

Here's size comparison vs a standard sized lighter:

And here's some more technical info from numista:

All in all, I really like this coin. It doesn't have much silver, but the two headed eagle is really fancy and I like how the coin has aged over the years !

Thanks again for sharing the interesting & historical coin, @trumpman. Yeah, 1910. The World had some memorable times, in store, in their near future.

Well, the two headed eagle is cool but I think I have seen finer silver coins from your collection.

So yeah, I think it's just there.

I really like the concept of a Russian coin over a classic American brand lighter that was made in China! I start to believe that there is a hidden meaning behind your posts mate 😂😂

I wonder if this silver is cheaper since anything Russian is banned by the west?
