Jubilee coins of the USSR
Commemorative and commemorative coins of the USSR are coins of the State Bank of the USSR dedicated to memorable events and anniversaries of historical figures and cultural figures.
Unlike coins of regular coinage, intended for daily circulation, commemorative coins were supposed for collectors and were issued in a limited edition. Mass chasing began in 1965, when a 1 ruble coin was issued, dedicated to the 20th anniversary of the victory over fascist Germany, with a circulation of 60 million copies. Coins were issued in honor of various anniversary events (the anniversary of the October Revolution), anniversaries of outstanding personalities (the anniversary of Lenin, Mendeleyev, Pushkin and many others). The largest series of commemorative coins of the USSR was issued in honor of the 1980 Olympic Games.
In general, coins were produced from a copper-nickel alloy worth 1 ruble, and since 1987 coins worth 3 and 5 rubles have also been minted. In addition, coins were produced from silver, gold, platinum and palladium, which were very popular on the international numismatic market.
Coins are broken by years (1965-) when they were minted!
