GregH Posted December 16, 2022 · Member Share Posted December 16, 2022 I've always been fascinated by the Romanovs, so i have started a new collection of Russian Czars and Czarinas. It's a short series of roubles from Peter the Great to Nicholas II, so i figure i can collect them all (or find novodels as space-fillers for the tricky rulers). My first Russian coin is Elizabeth Petrovna, popular among her people for her policy of executing nobody during her reign. Does anyone else have some roubles to share, or some fun facts and tips about collecting Russian coinage?
