Product Description

Ivan the Terrible, Silver Kopek Coin In Clear Box,With Story,And Certificate. This coin is a genuine antiquity. It is a silver Kopek coin issued during the reign of Ivan IV, “The Terrible.” It is often referred to as “wire money” because of the method of manufacture. The coins were crudely struck in a curious method on a continuous length of silver wire between coin dies, and then cut apart into individual coins. The coins were inscribed on one side with the Czar’s name and his titles in Old Russian script. The complete inscription is often partly cut off. On the other side is found the indistinct and partial image of Saint George slaying the dragon. W: 0.3-0.7 g |D: 9.3-13.5 mm
