The most expensive and rare coins of Russia: cost, catalog, prices

The most common reason for the high value of banknotes is the rarity due to the limited issue. Money without traces of circulation, commemorative and commemorative coins, non-standard money and money with marriage are also highly valued.

It is known that the older the coin, the more expensive it is. However, those that were made in the last century, in the case when they are rare, are of interest to collectors. It would seem that coins issued 10-15 years ago should not be considered something unusual, which means they should not have a high value.

5 kopecks

There is no doubt about the existence of such a coin. Her story began with the fact that some numismatist in the city of Kemerovo discovered this nickel in a small bag with other small things. The find brought him 300 thousand rubles. The numismatist sold the coin at auction.

Where did these 5 cents come from? Maybe it turned out that the coin was in a test batch, which was released by the St. Petersburg Mint, checking new stamps. And then she got into the mass circulation of 5-kopeck coins in 1998. It should be recalled that in 1999 the Central Bank refused to issue mass issues of all denominations. As a result, this nickel turned into an exhibit worthy of collections.

5 rubles

A rarity, the cost of which usually reaches 300 thousand rubles, are coins with a face value of 5 rubles, made in 1999. The reason is that in the two years before that, so many fives were stamped that the need for new ones did not arise for almost ten years. This means that all 5-ruble coins that were made between 1998 and 2008 are either issued for testing in order to test stamps, or they are just souvenir sets produced in very small editions.

Such an exception is the 5 ruble coin, made in 1999. To date, only four copies have been found that can be earned.

During a numismatic auction, the owner of a super-rare coin said that he got it after a trip on a minibus. The driver just gave him change. This message was initially viewed with doubt. An examination followed, during which it turned out that the coin was genuine, minted by the mint in St. Petersburg.

It remains only to add that any person can absolutely accidentally receive a fairly large amount. To do this, you just need to carefully study the coins that come across to him as change, accidentally discovered in some old piggy bank, or simply rolled into some far corner. It is quite possible that the find will become such a rarity, for which at the auction you can get an amount with five zeros.

Coins of Russia 2001: 50 kopecks, 1 ruble and 5 rubles

These banknotes were supposed to play the role of gifts to members of the delegations who came to St. Petersburg during its 300th anniversary. However, it was decided to refuse this option. As a result, the coins were kept in the cellars of the Moscow Mint for almost 3 years.

It can be emphasized that these banknotes will be quite expensive. The reason is that their circulation did not exceed 15 thousand copies.

Coins of Russia 2006: 5 rubles

This coin, for which numismatists are ready to pay 300 thousand rubles, is something of a myth. Rumors about her go around Russia, but she did not fall into the hands of anyone. Numismatists managed to see her only in the photograph. This photo was exhibited on the website of one of the auctions. It was large and of good quality.

Even today, the answer to the question has not been found – is it a real coin, or is it just a fake. It remains a mystery who owns it.

The cost of coins in 2011

With luck, this coin can be sold even for 30 thousand rubles. Many numismatists want to have it in their collection. There were 11 issues in total. The most valuable was the edition that was handed out as souvenirs in the spring of 2011.

This coin differs from the standard version by an enlarged monogram belonging to the St. Petersburg Mint. There are features in the small details available on it.

There are coins minted in 2012 and called the “Olympiad Talisman”. The difference is that there is a monogram SPMD. True, the average cost of such coins from numismatists is a thousand rubles. But there is an option in which the emblem (the monogram of the St. Petersburg Mint) is higher. The price of such coins is significantly quite high.

1 and 5 kopecks of the St. Petersburg Mint

Another valuable rarity, the cost of which can also reach 300 thousand rubles.  In these years, banknotes were minted there in denominations of 1 and 5 kopecks. At that time, the Moscow Mint no longer produced such. As for those made in St. Petersburg, the circulation was small. Now these coins are a rarity.
