Gold and Silver coins of Alexander I

During the reign of Alexander I of Russia, a variety of coins were minted, reflecting the currency system of the Russian Empire during that period. Alexander I ruled from 1801 to 1825. Here are the main types of coins minted during his reign:

Gold Coins:
Imperial Gold Ruble: The Imperial Gold Ruble was the primary gold coin of the Russian Empire during Alexander I's reign. These coins typically featured Alexander I's portrait on the obverse and the Russian imperial coat of arms on the reverse. They were minted in various years and were used for larger transactions and as a store of value.
10 and 5 Ruble Gold Coins: Gold coins with denominations of 10 and 5 rubles were also minted during Alexander I's reign. These coins were smaller in size and value compared to the Imperial Gold Ruble but were still considered significant denominations in the Russian currency system.
Other Gold Coins: There were smaller denominations of gold coins, such as 7.5 rubles, 3 rubles, and 2 rubles, which were minted during Alexander I's reign. These coins were typically used for smaller transactions and as a means of circulating gold currency.

Silver Coins:
Ruble: The ruble was the primary unit of currency in the Russian Empire, and silver rubles featuring Alexander I's portrait were minted during his reign. These coins typically featured Alexander I's portrait on the obverse and various designs on the reverse, including the imperial coat of arms or symbolic imagery.
50 Kopeks, 20 Kopeks, 10 Kopeks, and Other Fractional Silver Coins: Fractional silver coins, such as 50 kopeks, 20 kopeks, and 10 kopeks, were also minted during Alexander I's reign. These coins were smaller in size and value compared to the ruble and were used for smaller transactions.
These coins played a crucial role in the economy of the Russian Empire during Alexander I's reign and were widely used in everyday transactions. They are sought after by collectors of Russian coins and serve as important historical artifacts from the early 19th century.
