This beautiful 10 Ruble coin is made from .9 gold with a weight of 0.2489 ounces and comes in almost uncirculated condition. The Romanovs issued this coin between 1898 and 1911 at a denomination of 10 roubles.
The obverse features a portrait of Nicholas II in his iconic beard, along with his title inscribed in Russian. He stoically looks to the coin’s left, projecting royal strength.
The reverse displays the House of Romanov’s Imperial Coat of Arms along with the seal of His Tsarist Majesty. Here, a shielded double-headed eagle with a crown on either head spreads its wings and lets out a piercing cry. The two crowns also connect to form a third, larger crown in between the two heads. It holds an imperial orb in one talon, and an imperial scepter in the other. The eagle’s shield bears the coat of arms of Moscow, while its wings carry coats of arms for Kiev, Kazan, and various other Russian cities and former territories. Inscriptions include the denomination and year of mintage.
