Russia Kopek of Peter the Great

RUSSIA Wire Money of Peter the Great Peter the Great ruled from AD 1689 to 1725 and was the last Russian Czar to strike coins in the wire money form. Peter struck wire money to a standard of 0.38 grams until 1698, at which time the standard was lowered to 0.28 grams, and the vast majority of examples we see today are of this lower weight standard. They can be difficult to identify, because the very small size of the coins was far smaller than the dies from which they were struck, and no specimens will show more than a fraction of the total design. This page is designed to help with their identification, but narrow them down to exact variations of the coins
