If in Soviet times coins minted in Tsarist Russia were the ultimate dream of numismatists, then the range of interests of modern coin collectors has expanded significantly.

## The first Soviet coins

Own coins first appeared in everyday life of citizens of post-revolutionary Russia in 1921. At first, almost all of them were minted from silver. 1924 was the starting point for the mass production of copper coins. A new small change has appeared - kopeck coins, as well as two-, three- and five-kopeck copper coins.

Modern numismatists pay special attention to the two-kopeck coin, which was minted in the period from 1924 to 1925 in Petrograd. The thickness of this copper coin is 2 millimeters. Its diameter is 23.88 millimeters and its weight is 6.55 grams. What exact circulation it was minted is not known for certain. Modern numismatists are ready to pay for this money from 250 to 5050 rubles. The exact value of the coin depends on its appearance and state of preservation. For example, no one will pay more than 250 rubles for a two-kopeck coin with a corrugated edge and vertical notches.

A coin with a smooth edge is considered more valuable. For this rather rare money, collectors are ready to payabout 3000 rubles. But this, as it turned out, is far from the limit.

The price of the most expensive two-kopeck coin is 10 thousand US dollars or 678 thousand rubles. It turns out that in 1924 a certain batch of bronze "Two kopecks" was minted, as they say, for testing. Such a coin today is considered a real rarity. She weighs almost six grams.

The most expensive penny of 1924 is the so-called trial coin "One penny", minted from aluminum. The owner of this money, if he wants to sell it at a numismatic auction, can get rich by at least 240 thousand rubles. If the coin is in good condition, its price can reach 243,537 rubles.
