Details

Pen-pal to philosophes, patron of the arts, champion of women, genius of foreign policy, taker of rich and powerful lovers: Catherine II of Russia was a formidable presence, decades if not centuries ahead of her time, and worthy of her superlative sobriquet ”the Great. ” Weighing in at a massive 51 grams on average, these enormous 5-kopek copper coins are almost twice as heavy as U.S. silver dollars of the same period. Coin is packaged in a ring box featuring Catherine's insignia on the top.
