This big beautiful copper coin is now well over 200 years old! When you hold the celebrated treasure in your hands you’ll feel the draw of history and the power of the past. Catherine the Great was the most renowned and the longest-ruling female leader of Russia. Under her reign, Russia grew larger and stronger and became one of the great powers of Europe. Shown on the obverse are her elaborately monogrammed initials inside of a wreath. The reverse features the double-headed eagle, emblem of the famous house of Romanoff. Our Fine to Very Fine specimens are nicely preserved. No later Romanov coin can match its 44mm size and 2-oz. heft.
