1898 Russia 1 Ruble Note

Paper Money-World | AC coin$

Long before the Russian Kopeks, the Ruble was the standard running currency. It was even accepted in Finland as ties with the two countries existed for centuries.

This decorated note was issued by the ministries of Nicholas II, Tzar of Russia in the year 1898, precisely the year his mandate started as sovereign. Young Nicholas ruled until 1914, and after high national unrest, he was forced to abdicate in March 1917 in the midst of what was named the Bolshevik Revolution. Him and his family were detained and executed in a villa in July 1918.

Well loaded with decors and tzarist coats of arms, the one ruble note has been sought eagerly in European collectors venues. By some, it is considered a relicor memoir of a shiny yet socially oppressive Russian era. This note brought a detail about the Tzar double headed eagle monogram, it shows all principalities little coat of arms on each wing.

Nicely designed, please enjoy this bill as part of my international collection. By the way, there are several motion pictures well performed about the afamated Romanovs, check into them to visualize the crude realities of this relevant historical times.

In my own words.

VERY NICE! It seems it’s all the old currency, international or US, is when they actually tried to be artistic.
