What is this and, more importantly, where is it? Having had sufficient experience to identify species, I want to offer dear readers to familiarize with the names of the elements used in catalogue descriptions of varieties and their location on the field of the coin. Will be considered only the reverses of the coins (the side where there is the figure of value), since the foreground usually do not cause problems. There and so all is clear: the eagle (rider and horse), inscriptions, date and mint mark.
Let's start with penny denominations: 1, 5, 10 and 50 cents.
As ornament these coins are the same (except for the numeral value), we will examine the name of elements and their location on the example of coins of 50 cents.
Now to ruble denominations. The ornament of these different coins, so we will focus on each denomination.
Coin 1 ruble
Coin of 2 rubles
Coin 5 rubles
Coin of 10 rubles
That's all. If the article was useful and informative for You, I will be very happy.
