Catherine the Great Low Mintage Silver Patina
This handsome Sterling Silver Patina of a Catherine the Great Rouble is retrodated 1762. Due to the high silver price, the company that made them melted a large part of the mintage. The stated maximum mintage is just 180 pieces in Sterling Silver, but we know that the actual surviving mintage is much lower.
Beautiful Sterling Silver Proof and a low mintage. With the Royal Mint charging almost £100 for a high mintage silver coin of the same size. I think our price is most reasonable.
Catherine was known as a patron of the arts and her personal art collection which was in the Winter Palace, is now known as the Hermitage in St. Petersburg.
