According to Numismaster, there is no 2 Roubles coin dated 2002 with Y#798.

Details for Y# 834:
2 Roubles, 2002, Copper Nickel Zinc, 5.1 grams, 23 mm,segmented reeding, Two headed eagle above curved inscription (obverse), Value and flower (Reverse).

It also mentions that 2002 dated coins exist only in sets (from both Moscow and St. Petersburg mint), mintage being 15,000 each.

No catalog value given.

Hope that helps.

It existed in several old editions of SCWC. I think that it was just a mistake: the same information given twice.
