Coins of Russia and the Soviet Union

Russia, spanning Eastern Europe and Northern Asia, is the largest country in the world by area, extending across eleven time zones, and shares land boundaries with fourteen countries. It is the world's ninth-most populous country and Europe's most populous country. The country's capital and largest city is Moscow. Saint Petersburg is Russia's second-largest city and "cultural capital."

On June 24th 1812, French emperor Napoleon Bonaparte led an ill-fated invasion of Russia. This ill-prepared advance on Russia, and his ultimate defeat on December 14th, resulted in Napoleon's exile to the island of Elba. This coin commemorates the 100 year anniversary of the Cossack's victory, known in Russia as the Patriotic War of 1812. This type is 90% silver and only 46,000 were minted. The dies were engraved by M. A. Skudnov.

|Russia|, |Russia,| |Elizabeth| |Petrovna,| |6| |December| |1741| |-| |5| |January| |1762|
Elizabeth remains one of the most popular Russian monarchs because of her decision not to execute a single person during her reign, her numerous construction projects, and her strong opposition to Prussian policies. Elizabeth brought about a remarkable Age of Enlightenment in Russia. Her court became one of the most splendid in Europe. She encouraged foundation of the University of Moscow and the Imperial Academy of Arts. She modernized Russia's roads and financed grandiose projects - the Winter Palace and the Smolny Cathedral in Saint Petersburg are among the chief monuments of her reign. Elizabeth led the Russian Empire during the War of Austrian Succession (1740–48) and the Seven Years' War (1756–63). Russian troops enjoyed several victories against Prussia and briefly occupied Berlin. She died at the time Frederick the Great was finally considering surrender in January 1762.

Russia, Peter II Alexeyevich, 17 May 1727 – 30 January 1730

|Russia|, |Russia,| |Peter| |II| |Alexeyevich,| |17| |May| |1727| |–| |30| |January| |1730||Rouble|
Peter II Alexeyevich ruled Russia from age 11 until his untimely death at 14. His mother died when he was ten days old. His father, the tsarevich Alexei, accused of treason by his own father, Peter the Great, died in prison in 1718. Three-year-old Peter and his four-year-old sister, Natalya, were orphans. Their grandfather ignored them. His earliest governesses were the wives of a tailor and a vintner. Peter the Great died in 1725 and was succeeded by his second wife, Catherine I. During the reign of Catherine, young Peter was ignored but was assigned a program of education that included history, geography, mathematics, and foreign languages. Peter was uninterested, preferring hunting and feasting. When Catherine died in 1727, the court named Peter heir, even though Catherine had two daughters of her own. Peter II was quick-witted, but stubborn, and had no desire to rule. In late December 1729 Peter fell dangerously ill. The next day doctors diagnosed smallpox. He died on 30 January. A few minutes before his death, in his delirium, he ordered horses so that he could visit his sister Natalya who had died in 1725.
