Coin 5 kopecks 1935 is a real find for a numismatist. This year, when minting monetary units, several stamps were changed, which ensured a variety of varieties of coins. The price for such money varies from a thousand to a hundred thousand rubles. But first things first.
Production - Leningrad Mint. The coin of 5 kopecks 1935 was produced with a circulation of more than eleven and a half million copies. It would seem that the circulation is huge, why is the price so high? The answer is simple. Several stamps were used in production during the year, the appearance of the obverse has changed, the appearance of the reverse is also different for many coins.
Coins of 5 kopecks of 1935 are made of bronze with the addition of aluminum. Golden color. The coin weighs five grams. On both sides there is an edge with ledges. No magnetic properties and characteristics.
The entire upper half of the disc is occupied by the number "5". In appearance, it looks more like a capital letter than a printed one. It looks like someone wrote it by hand. And here is the inscription "kopecks", locatedbelow, already printed. The lowest part of the coin disc for 5 kopecks 1935 is occupied by the year of manufacture. And, of course, an indispensable attribute on the coins of that time is a decorative dot under the numbers.
Edging - beautiful ears of wheat with thin stems. They are located on both sides, as if bypassing the main images. If on later coins the ears come out of oak leaves, then on the 5 kopeck coin of 1935, simply beautiful monograms are located below - continuations of the stem.
The upper part and the main central place is, of course, the coat of arms of the Soviet Union. It is a drawing of the planet Earth, in the center of which there is a sickle and a hammer. The ears of wheat, decorated with a beautiful ribbon, go around the Earth. It has seven turns (three on each side) and one turn at the bottom connecting. The sun emerges from the center of the ribbon bow. It is not shown in full, only its upper quarter is visible. Long and thin rays depart from the solar semicircle, reaching the drawing of the Earth. Above, where the ears almost meet, there is a star. Five faces, carved, rounded.
At the very bottom is the abbreviation USSR with dots after each letter, as it was then customary to write. Already in the same year, on the same coin of 5 kopecks 1935, everything will change. The dots will disappear, there will be more space between the letters, they will become blurry, thinner and sharper.
Around the entire perimeter of the coin is the famous slogan "Proletarians of all countries, unite!". All punctuation marksobserved.
In total, the coin of 5 kopecks of 1935 has seven varieties. Two of them are formed due to the use of two stamps for the reverse, four - for the obverse. Another type of coin is considered the most expensive and rare.
Old stamp type
For production, a stamp from 1926-1934 was used. On it was printed a call for the unification of all countries. In addition, if you look closely, the hammer was close to the second meridian. The spike on the right has one long and one short awn.
New stamp type
The image of the star has changed on the obverse. If on the coins of 5 kopecks of 1935 of the "old" sample it was convex, then on the new coins you can see a concave five-pointed star, as if engraved inside the coin.
You should also take a closer look at the tips of the left spikelet (the longest one). On one coin, it will go above the beam of the (left) star, on the other - a little lower. The distance at which the letter "P" is located in relation to the image of the coat of arms also differs. On one variety it will be more distant, on the other it will be more advanced.
The only defect that was found at auctions was a chipped piece at the top of the coin.
The cheapest will be coins with marriage (from 300 rubles), as well as monetary units that have a sprig of wheat ear going beyond the left beam (550 - 750 rubles). Coins, the obverse of which does not have knots, as well as on which there is a slogan and decorative dots,are estimated at 4,000 to 90,000 rubles.
The most expensive will be the "remake" of the Khrushchev era, which was released in scanty quantities as a presentation for foreign leaders. Such coins are valued at 350,000 rubles and more.
