Tatarstan coins
« on: May 20, 2011, 05:03:03 PM »
hello friends
a question :
i know exist a coin set for circulation dated 1993 ( 3 coins ) , and now is used in Tatarstan the russian coins .
But i have see in internet a coin set ( 7 coins   ) dated 2008 with drawings of animals , and a bimetallic coin ( 10 rubli ) with Tatarstan coat of arm .
I searched in the site of russian and Tatarstan central bank and i have find the 10 rubli coin ,so it is legal tender , but i have not found anything about coin set !
I know this set is not for circulation , but is minted by russian mint or is minted by private mint ??  ( in this second case coins are illegal , like Kurdistan , Darfur , Palestine ecc coin set )

There wasn't much information about this issue even in Russia. I've found only one article. Sorry, I don't have it in English. It is only available in automatic translation.

Do you know about the 2008 issues?

I think they are privately produced patterns, probably from the US.

Yes I've seen them. There's no chance that it can be an official issue. But no one knows where they were produced. One version is that they are from China, like many other fakes.

TATARSTAN 7 Coins 2008 UNC Set Wildlife

This 2008 dated seven coin set from the Republic of Tatarstan features native wildlife. With the collapse, Tatarstan declared itself independent. After much political maneuvering, it became a Federal Republic within the Russian Federation, thus possessing a large degree of autonomy. This unofficial set from the Republic of Tatarstan includes the 10 Kopecks picturing an owl, a 15 Kopecks with a rabbit, a Golden Eagle on the 50 Kopecks, a Red Deer on the 1 Ruble, a Red Fox on the 3 Rubles, a Gray Wolf on the 5 Rubles, and a bear on the 10 Rubles. The obverse of each coin features the stylized winged lion from the Tatarstan arms. Only 2000 sets were minted. The coins are Uncirculated, though are poorly struck.

Mintage: 2,000 sets only.

Republic of Tatarstan is a federal subject of the Russian Federation (a republic). Its size is 68,000 km² with a population of 3,800,000. Its capital is Kazan.

It's odd that the name of the state is in a different language from the denomination. 'Tatarstan Republikasi' is Tatar, but the forms of the word for rouble(s) follow correct Russian grammar (1 rubl', 2/3 rublya, 5+ rublei). You'd have thought that even if they called the unit the rouble, it would have a Tatar spelling and plural conventions. Compare pre-euro Belgium, where Dutch-language coins had the denomination in franken and the Francophone ones in francs.
