Tannu Tuva coinage 1934
« on: April 20, 2013, 02:48:57 AM »
These coins seem to be hard to find. Much harder to assemble as a set. Fair enough, if you fork out hundreds of dollars, you'll definitely get nicer ones. Nevertheless, here's a couple of them.





If I am not wrong, these were struck in Leningrad. One year coinage. An interesting era of coinage where Tuva tried to declare independence and now is a part of the Russian Federation.

Much harder, or even impossible, is to find 1933. I have met only one image of such coin, but there must be all the denominations from that year.

I can do better. I have never seen a single type of Tannu Tuva :) Those coins certainly "lived in interesting times".

Never thought I would see a Tannu Tuva coin dated 1933 - believed they were only struck in 1934. That said, for 5 kopek coins struck in 1933 to 1935 - they are key dates that do cost a fair amount of money. Tannu Tuva coins happen to be struck in the same mint and same era. Makes you wonder if anything big happened back then.

Tuva coins are indeed hard to find. Not quite as difficult as Armavir coins, but close enough. That's a beautiful 1933 issue 'ciscoins'. I didn't realize they existed. In any case, here's one from my collection. 15 Kopejek.

This screwball alphabet, used for what appears to be Turkish send me to Wikipedia.   It was something invented in 1930, and eliminated in 1943.  They use Russian now, with 3 added letters.   Makes the coins that much more a window into a vanished time.

It might be good to post a pic of an aluminium 20 kopeek piece from 1934. Offered on ebay for some time now.

Hello
I'd like to know more about weights of those coins because I got a 5K with a weight of 4.77g and I saw one actually to sold on Ebay with a weight of 5.03g (Krause don't give weights of those coins).
My coin seems a genuine one but the surface is porous.
Is it a fake or the result of a chemical cleaning on a very used coin that could explain the difference of weight ?
Or maybe there is variations in weights of this issue : it would be nice if other members give here the weight of their coins.

Have you done a "ping test" on your coin?

Hello,

I found here a table with the weight of Tannu Tuva coins

http://coinss.com/catalog_soviet/tuva_en.html

Please note that the edge of 5 K. is here mentioned as reeded (as my coin) while Numista indicate a smooth edge, see here

https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces27103.html

Thank you
