Russia 5 Roubles 1992: Kazakhstan
« on: April 03, 2012, 11:23:47 PM »
Here is a Russian 5 Rouble piece issued by the Bank of Russia in 1992 with "Kazakhstan" on the obverse.

In those very early days of the CIS, did Russia issue a currency for Kazakhstan, and did this piece actually circulate?

That Russian coin was issued as part of a thematic series - History and Culture of Central Asia. What the coin depicts is the mausoleum shown at the top of this page. One year later, Russia issued a Turkmenistan piece ...

Kazakhstan´s president Nazarbayev wrote in his book that Russia wanted to continue issuing roubles for Kazakhstan (with or without special signs - that remained unclear), but then changed these plans.

As I know, this"coin" has never been in circulation.

Within the next few years after the collapse of  the Soviet Union many newly "independent" countries used Russian ruble as currency and  USSR passports as IDs.  Inflation was so high that the coin of 5 rubles had no value for the market. It's just for collectors who that time had no funds to collect coins. It was the time was great collections cost pennies... :'(
