In 1825, during the first days after the death of Alexander I began the minting of silver rubles, with the portrait of his brother Constantine, who was to take the throne. But Constantine abdicated in favor of his younger brother Nicholas, managed to produce only 8-9 coins from a non-existent Emperor. One instance is in the collection of the Hermitage Museum, the second in the state, the third in the Museum of the Smithsonian Institute (USA), and the rest in private collections. The demand for that coin among collectors has been a long time, so often made fakes. The most famous forgery is "the Ruble Trubetskoy", made in Paris in the 1860s at the mint for Prince A. V. Trubetskoi. Currently a huge number of copies, they are usually low quality and are easily recognized by experts, but misleading beginners who believe that they got "the" ruble.
The coins presented in the photos are in the collections of their owners and are not sold
