1897-1911 Russia 5 Rouble Gold NGC XF
Last Gold of the Russian Czar!
In July of 1918, a Czech contingent of the Russian Revolutionary White Army approached Ekaterinburg in Russia's Ural Mountains. There, Czar Nicholas II was being held prisoner with his family. In the early morning of July 17th, the Czar and his family were murdered, erasing the Russian royal legacy forever.
But, think back to an earlier day. In 1912, Peter Carl Fabergé created an Easter egg honoring Alexi, the heir to Russian throne. Alexi had been so near death from hemophilia that his death certificate was drawn up. The 1912 egg celebrated his recovery. Czar Nicholas II may have paid Fabergé with 5 Rouble Gold coins like these dated between 1898 and 1911. Each features the image of the last Czar of all the Russias along with the double-headed Russian eagle. Only six years later, the Czar and his son were doomed, and so were all gold coins displaying his image. They were ruthlessly melted by Lenin and later Stalin to wipe out any memories of Russia's past. They have always been coveted for their beauty and gold content, but since the fall of communism they're also being bought up at a rapid clip by newly wealthy Russians who want these historic remnants back in the motherland.
