Description of coin Ruble 1740 (with monogram):

The ruble, in contrast to the RUB of mass production has a monogram of Ivan III (VI) instead of a portrait. The release of such rubles was planned prior to the age of the Emperor not to put on the coins the portrait of the child. The problem is the result decided in another way - on the coins of the age of the Emperor is a bit overstated. The sample coin is considered one of the rarest and most recently at an auction it was bought for $ 4 million.

The obverse of the coin shows the monogram of Ivan III (VI), represents the Union of the two letters "I"(Ivan) in a mirror image, between which is woven the figure "3". Below the letters "СПБ"(Saint Peterburg). Upstairs is the Imperial crown. Of the circumference - "ИОАННЪ III Б•М•IМПЕРАТ:IСАМОДЕР:ВСЕРОСС"(stands for "John III, by the grace of God Emperor and autocrat of all Russia").

The reverse of the coin depicts the coat of arms of the Russian Empire in the mid XVIII century. The coat of arms double-headed eagle with raised wings, crowned by two Imperial crowns, above is the same crown, but a larger size is associated with lower crowns waving a tape of Andrew's order. All the crowns are connected by a tape of Andrew's order. Right Talon the eagle holds a scepter, the left - power. On the chest is placed a shield with the Moscow coat of arms: St. George on horseback slaying a serpentine dragon with wings. Moscow coat of arms surrounded by chain of the order of Saint Apostle Andrey Pervozvannogo. In a circle the inscription (from top): "17 40 THE MONET • RUBLE •".
