Alexis I ‘Copper Riot’ Kopek, 1654-1663image.png.e28983cedb29091f3c10de75e16d416a.png
Moscow Old Mint. Copper, 0.45g. Horse and rider, MO below. Царь и Великий князь Алексей Михайлович Всея Руси (Tsar and Grand Duke Alexey Michailovich of All Russia) (Grishin 1116). Alexis I issued large numbers of emergency copper kopeks in 1654 (valued at the equivalent of silver kopeks) to fund his wars, but this led to a severe financial crisis. Angry Moscow residents revolted in the 1662 Copper Riot, which was put down violently.
