Rare coin 1830 year issue - Russia. Country: Russia (Russian Empire). Date: 1830 (St. Petersburg mint). Denomination: 5 Roubles (Rubles). Reported Mintage: 490,000. KM (Krause-Mishler) Catalog #: 174. Gold Content: .917 Fine (22K). Actual Gold Weight (AGW): .1929 oz. As of this listing, the spot gold market is about $950 per ounce, resulting in a melt value of approximately $183 for this coin. Obverse Design: Imperial eagle with shield, wings down. Reverse Design: Inscription within wreath. Grading Opinion: A very nearly uncirculated coin, original luster remaining on smooth, unblemished surfaces. Excellent detail in the wings and shield on the obverse and the reverse wreath. My personal grading opinion: Choice Almost Uncirculated. Reserve: This rare coin is offered with an undisclosed reasonable reserve. Additional Comments: Struck under Alexander I and Nicholas I, this early "wings-down" design is not to be confused with the later, more common (but still scarce) "wings-up" design. Russian gold coins are very popular now, and due to the rarity of these early coins, especially in such nice condition, they are in high demand. This may be your best chance to acquire an especially attractive piece at a competitive price. Coin price 30 March 2008 5438 * It's realy rare coin. Russia.
