    Armavir~ Civil War Coinage

    While there were numerous banknotes issued during the Russian Civil War, there were very few coins issued during this period. However, ARMAVIR in the Caucasus, was one area that issued local coinage. They had three denominations 1, 3 and 5 Ruble coins (the 5 Ruble coin being the rarest of the three), all dated 1918. The two specimens listed a 3 Ruble (Type 2), and a 5 Ruble coin. All coins from this area carry the double-headed eagle stripped of it's crown and regalia, symbolising Russia's former glory.

    The whole coinage from Armavir is very scarce.I've seen only one coin from there - either a 1 Rouble or a 3 Roubles,but I can't recall which one,as it was a very long time ago.

    This is the sort of thing that needs to be uploaded onto http://www.zeno.ru anyway.

    Hi Aidan. These are very scarce to rare coins. The real problem is you find alot of fakes for these coins, especially the 1 Ruble specimens. I'm including attachments for images of the 1 Ruble coin, both fake and genuine. NOTE!-These are NOT from my collection. I'm just posting this as reference to inform people the difference between the fake and genuine coins.

    Is it me, or does the fake look REALLY fake? How consistent was the strike on these?

    It's not you. They do look REALLY fake, so much that it's almost pitiful. As for the consistancy of the strike, I'm not sure. What I do know is I've seen these fakes numerous times on Ebay and recently at a coin show. Fortunately, these particular ones are easy to spot. However, I've seen other fakes/copies that are more elaborate, and thus harder to spot.
