For today’s world coin preview from the Stack’s Bowers Galleries official auction of the ANA World’s Fair of Money, we have an incredibly well preserved Ruble of Peter I (the Great). The inaugural emperor Peter of the House of Romanov ruled the territory of Russia first as Tsar and then as Emperor after he expanded it into a major European power. Peter the Great ruled Russia for over 40 years and forged the Tsardom into an empire, modernizing the traditionalist and medieval society.

Previews of the Stack’s Bowers Official Auction of the ANA World’s Fair of Money continue with more incredible Russian rarities! These two lots (1442 and 1443) represent two halves of a story about Empress Elizabeth Petrovna of Russia who believed she deserved the Imperial throne over her distant relation, the infant Emperor Ivan VI.

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 golden age of Imperial Russia, the reign of Catherine II (the Great), provides this week’s highlight coin from the Stack’s Bowers and Ponterio official auction of the ANA World’s Fair of Money Auction held in Chicago this August. Catherine II, though not Russian by birth, came into the position of Empress following a coup d’état and the assassination of her husband, Emperor Peter III, at the conclusion of the Seven Years’ War.
