Russia 5 rouble gold coin
Minted 1897 - 1911
Fineness: .900
Actual Gold Content: .1244 troy ounce

 

The ruling Romanov Dynasty which began in 1613 when Michael Romanov was named Tsar came to an end 304 years later when Nicholas II (shown above) abdicated under pressure to a provincial government as the Bolsheviks rose to power. Shy in his youth, Nicholas was never enamoured of his role as Grand Prince, once telling a foreign ambassador that he would have preferred to have been a sailor. Any pursuit of that interest was forever dashed when he (together with his wife and family of four daughters and young heir) was savagely murdered late one night little more than a year after stepping down from power.

The reverse of this 5 rouble coin features the device of the imperial coat of arms and seal of 'His Tsarist Majesty': a two-headed eagle (first introduced by Ivan the Terrible) now with three crowns to represent the sum of the two Tartar kingdoms of Astrakhan and Kazan in addition to the Russian realm. Hanging over the eagle's breast is a shield on which a horseman is slaying a dragon -- a symbol well known to all holders of the popular British Sovereign.
