Description of coin Altyn 1704 ( BC):

In Russia the word "Altyn" was called the 6 coins "Denga", the word has Tatar roots. The concept is so firmly entrenched in the Russian language, under Peter I, it was decided to mint a coin of this value, equated with 6 free money or 3 cents. Later on Altynov refused. Coin of this type was produced in 1704, 1711 and 1713-1714 years, and in 1711-1712 and 1718 with the designation "altanic".

The front and back sides surrounded by a bezel with floral ornament (its partial absence is not a marriage).

The obverse of the coin in the center of the emblem of Russia at the beginning of the XVIII century - double-headed eagle with outstretched wings, on the heads of the Royal crown, over which is the same, but larger. In paws the eagle holds the symbols of power - the scepter and Orb.

On the reverse the Central coin in the middle under the overline indicates the date of the coinage of the old Slavonic letters (1704) below nominal - "АЛТЫНЪ" at the bottom of the letters "Б К" on the sides and between which the point ("БК"means "big treasure").
