The 15 kopeck coin of 1982 is not of high value, as it was minted in a multimillion-dollar quantity. The stamps that were used to produce such coins were often used, so the money is of little value to collectors. Only a small number of coins are made using the new dies. They belong to the category of improved coinage and are of interest to numismatists.
The coin of 15 kopecks 1982, minted by the Leningrad Mint, is also called ordinary. The exact circulation is not known, but there is information that the number of coins is in the millions. Money was made from a copper-nickel alloy, which was popular at that time, to which zinc was added in a small amount. It has no magnetic characteristics. Color light grey. Weight - no more than 2.5 grams.
At the top of the coin 15 kopecks (1982) there is an indication of the denomination. The number is located in the upper half of the circle. The entire lower half of the coin is occupiedthe inscription "kopecks" and the year of production of the money. If the numbers showing the face value are sharp and have edges, then the year of production looks outwardly smoother and more rounded. On both sides are wheat ears that come out of two oak leaves.
More interesting is the obverse of the 15 kopeck coin (1982). The price is formed precisely because of the differences in obverses. But more about that later, while let's figure out what is depicted on this side of the coin.
So, the main and most part is, of course, the coat of arms of the Soviet Union. This is a classic design for coins issued during this period. In the center is an image of the planet, on which the hammer and sickle are clearly visible. From below, the Earth is heated by the rays of the sun. Moreover, only a small part of the Sun is depicted on the 15 kopeck coin (1982). The rays are long and come close to the Earth.
Wheat stalks gathered into ears surround the coat of arms. They are tied with a ribbon, which is connected at the bottom with a beautiful semi-bow. The number of ribbons is 7. If you count the number of bandages, then it will be equal to fifteen. This symbolizes the number of union republics.
From the right side of the globe, the ears have no awn. This indicates the use of stamp number 1 for minting the 15 kopeck coin (1982). It is much rarer than the others. It is of great value as the coins are rare.
The second type of stamp (number 2) was used for the production of all other monetary units. These coins are worth a lot.cheap, for collecting and numismatists of no value. Here, the rays of the ears are longer and thinner, there are awns. The coat of arms is slightly lowered in relation to all other images.
Cost of 15 kopecks 1982
Coins with a half-mast image of the coat of arms, as well as those with ears without awns, cost from three to thirty rubles. Money minted with stamp number 1 is considered more expensive. They already have noticeable awns at the stems of ears, they have wider rays on the star. The price of such coins will vary from eight hundred rubles to eleven thousand.
Coins of "improved quality" cost from five hundred to five thousand. For coins of 15 kopecks in 1982, a high price for defective monetary units is not typical. As a rule, marriages are valued, but here the cost will be from one to seventy rubles. Of course, prices are not accurate. Everything will also depend on the safety and integrity of the products of the Mint.
Summing up, we can say that such coins cannot be sold at a high price. This is only possible for a few. This is due to a large number of copies (more than a million) and the absence of any features (changes of stamps during the year of production, pronounced marriages, etc.).
