Numismatics is a very common hobby. Many people are ready for many years to look for a coin that is missing in their collection. And sometimes such a found coin is very expensive.
Unique coins from the early 90s
People who are ignorant of numismatics are often surprised: why are some coins so different from others? And indeed, there is a stir around some coins. For example, 20 rubles in 1992. This coin is very popular among numismatists. No less popular is her "companion" - a ten-ruble coin of the ninety-second year.
It would seem strange: in the first years after the collapse of the Soviet Union, money depreciated so much that, as a rule, no one even took coins of this denomination with them to the store. What has changed now? In our time, the cost of some coins issued in these years reaches tens of thousands of current rubles.
Features of magnetic twenty
Practically no different from their non-magnetized "relatives", 20 rubles of 1992 are nevertheless highly valued. This is primarily due to the fact that they are made of steel coated with a special alloy consisting of copper and nickel. They were produced only by MoscowMint and, accordingly, stamped with the abbreviation MMD.
An ignorant person will not even be able to distinguish these magnetized 20 rubles of 1992 from the same-looking, but not magnetic coins. You can do it by eye, except perhaps using a magnetized surface.
Connoisseurs are aware of another distinctive feature of 20 rubles 1992. These are eagle feathers on the back. In one edition, all the feathers on the wings of an eagle have notches, in the second one two eagle feathers are left without notches.
But most importantly, don't forget that some of the 1992 20 rubles were magnetized. This, and a very small production run, is their main value.
These are the coins valued by our and foreign collectors. Good luck to them in their hobbies!
