Copper coins of Nicholas II

Nicholas II was the last Emperor of Russia, reigning from 1894 until his abdication in 1917 during the Russian Revolution. While Nicholas II did not personally issue copper coins, his reign saw the issuance of various copper coins in the Russian Empire's currency system. These coins bore his likeness and were minted during his reign. Here are some of the main types of copper coins that circulated during Nicholas II's reign:

Kopeks: The kopek was the smallest denomination of Russian currency, equivalent to one-hundredth of a ruble. Copper kopeks featuring Nicholas II's portrait on the obverse and various designs on the reverse were minted throughout his reign.

Denga: The denga was a fraction of a kopek, typically one-half or one-quarter of a kopek. Copper dengas with Nicholas II's portrait were also minted.

Polushka: The polushka was another fractional denomination, usually one-half of a kopek. These too featured Nicholas II's portrait.

Copper Wire Money: In some instances, especially during periods of economic instability or war, the Russian government issued copper wire money. These were thin strips of copper stamped with the denomination and often featuring the ruler's portrait, including that of Nicholas II.

These copper coins were widely used in everyday transactions throughout the Russian Empire during Nicholas II's reign. They provide valuable insights into the economic and social conditions of the time. Today, they are sought after by collectors of Russian coins and serve as historical artifacts from the late Imperial period of Russia.
