Silver coins of Alexander II

During the reign of Alexander II of Russia, who ruled from 1855 to 1881, a variety of silver coins were minted. These coins featured Alexander II's portrait on the obverse and various designs on the reverse, reflecting the political and cultural context of the Russian Empire during his rule. Here are some of the main types of silver coins that circulated during Alexander II's reign:

Ruble: The ruble was the primary unit of currency in the Russian Empire. Silver rubles featuring Alexander II's portrait were minted in various years and with different designs on the reverse, including the imperial coat of arms or symbolic imagery.

50 Kopeks: Half-ruble coins, known as 50 kopeks, were also minted in silver during Alexander II's reign. These coins typically featured similar designs to the ruble but with a lower denomination.

20 Kopeks: Silver coins with a denomination of 20 kopeks were also common during Alexander II's reign. These coins were smaller in size and value compared to the ruble and 50 kopeks coins.

10 Kopeks: Similar to the 20 kopeks coins, silver coins with a denomination of 10 kopeks were also issued. These coins were of smaller denomination and size, suitable for smaller transactions.

Other Fractional Silver Coins: There were also smaller fractional silver coins, such as 5 kopeks and 3 kopeks, which were minted during Alexander II's reign.

These silver coins were widely used in everyday transactions throughout the Russian Empire during Alexander II's rule. They represent an important part of Russia's numismatic history and provide 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 mid-19th century.
