In an offering of historic proportions, our Official Auction of the ANA World’s Fair of Money will feature in excess of 300 lots of Russian coins ranging in value from a few hundred dollars into the six-figure range. Condition and absolute rarities abound, and many coins are pedigreed to important collections such as the George Gund III Collection and the Demarete Collection. Much has already been written and publicized about lots 1545, 1546, and 1547, the 1895 pattern 1/3 Imperial of 5 Russ, 2/3 Imperial of 10 Russ, and the Imperial of 15 Russ from the Gund Collection.

The Stack’s Bowers and Ponterio world numismatic team is very enthusiastic for the upcoming ANA World’s Fair of Money to be held in Chicago this August. As part of our official auction for this event we will offer some of the ultimate Russian numismatic rarities. The three coins featured here represent a complete pattern set from an unimplemented experimental monetary revamp.
