It is often referred to as "wire money" because of the method of manufacture. The coins were crudely struck in a curious method on a continuous length of silver wire between coin dies, then cut apart into individual coins. The coins were inscribed on the one side with the Czar's name and his titles in old Russian script. The complete inscription is often partly cut off. On the other side is found the indistinct and partial image of St. George slaying the Dragon. A beautiful example of a most unusual minting process this coin would make an excellent addition to any world coins collection.

Obv: Horse Rider

Rev: Great Tsar Peter

Peter the Great, Peter I, Peter Alexeyevich 9 June [O.S. 30 May] 1672 - 8 February [O.S. 28 January] 1725 ruled the Tsardom of Russia and later the Russian Empire from 7 May (O.S. 27 April) 1682 until his death in 1725, jointly ruling before 1696 with his elder half-brother, Ivan V. Through a number of successful wars, he expanded the Tsardom into a much larger empire that became a major European power and also laid the groundwork for the Russian navy after capturing ports at Azov and the Baltic Sea. He led a cultural revolution that replaced some of the traditionalist and medieval social and political systems with ones that were modern, scientific, Westernised and based on the Enlightenment. Peter's reforms made a lasting impact on Russia, and many institutions of Russian government trace their origins to his reign. He is also known for founding and developing the city of St. Petersburg, which remained the capital of Russia until 1917
