Russia 1, 2, 3, and 5 Kopeks  1926 to 1991
Russia 1, 2, 3, and 5 Kopeks 1926 to 1991

The trouble with collectible brass coins from the former Soviet Union (USSR - CCCP) is that most are unattractive, heavily worn, and without much detail. If you have a 1, 2, 3, or 5 kopek piece that is in good shape and has good eye appeal, you can probably sell your coin to a collector for a few US dollars. The coin in our picture is not completely unattractive, so it might fetch $2 to $3.

In general, the older dates are worth a little more than coins dated after 1960. Here are the *better dates* of these coins. Prices given are catalog values for fully uncirculated specimens. Circulated coins will be worth far less.

1926 to 1936: $10
1941 to 1951: $10
1964: $5

1924: $50
1926 to 1946: $5

1924: $100
1926 to 1946: $10
1951: $10

1924, 1926, 1927, 1933, 1934, 1935, 1936, 1937: $40
1945: $20

The above values are catalog values. Read our Important Terminology page on the top left in order to properly interpret them.

This ought to be quite interesting for many of CQ's readers: Does the Soviet Union issue (pattern?) coinage 1947?? I have recently seen coinage with denomination of 2, 3, 5, & 10 Kopeks offered. They do not figure in Standard Catalogue of World Coins (2008), neither on the Net(except in stores maintained by sellers from a certain country). Are they pure 'Coin-Earners' (=inventions) or do they exist? - Martina
