Seaman Ivan F. Krusenstern — 250th Anniversary of Birth (19.11.1770)

Ivan Krusenstern (1770–1846) is a Russian geographer, sea explorer, admiral, and founding member of the Russian Geographical Society.
He was born not far from Revel (Tallinn). After finishing the school at the Cathedral of Saint Mary the Virgin in Tallinn (also known as Dome Church) at the age of 14, he entered the Kronstadt Naval Cadet Corps. Krusenstern took part in the Russian-Swedish war of 1788–1790. In 1793–1799, he visited North and South America, Africa and Asia (India and China) together with a group of young promising Navy officers.
Upon returning home, he presented a plan of a round-the-world voyage and was appointed head of the first Russian circumnavigation of the world. The expedition set sail from Kronstadt on two ships Nadezhda and Neva in summer 1803. Besides the crew, the ships carried the Russian embassy to Japan headed by Nikolai Rezanov.
The goals of the circumnavigation, which finished in summer 1806, were to explore marine environment, verify maps, and conduct various research. Based on the results of the voyage, Ivan Krusenstern published its detailed account in three volumes 'Journey around the World in the Years 1803, 1804, 1805, and 1806' and an atlas with numerous maps and prints.
After the circumnavigation, he was director of the Naval Cadet Corps for many years, prepared and published a fundamental cartographic work 'Atlas of the Southern Sea'.
Ivan Krusenstern made a huge contribution to the development of oceanography. His name was given to several geographical objects.

An unusual name that is significantly different in latin characters. I knew the ship and now I know the man.

The 75th Anniversary of the Foundation of the UN

The United Nations Organisation was founded in 1945. At present, 193 states are members of the UN. The mission and activities of the United Nations are shaped by the goals and principles formulated in the UN Charter.
Due to its powers and authorities set forth in the UN Charter and its unique international character, the United Nations Organisation can address issues faced by the mankind in the 21st century. These include peace and security, climate change, sustainable development, human rights, disarmament, terrorism, humanitarian and emergency situations, gender equality, management, food production, and many others.
The UN constitutes a forum where representatives from all states may express their opinions in the General Assembly, the Security Council, the Economic and Social Council and other bodies and committees. While assisting and organising dialogue and between its member states, the UN becomes a facility helping governments to find common grounds and resolve problems by mutual efforts.

Just my opinion
The title of this contains "investment"

It is my opinion that collecting coins is a fantastic hobby but never a good investment.

I interpret the word as a commercial adjective devoid of meaning. Something like "whiter than white". Many of the pieces have an indication of silver content. This is part of the deception that they can serve as small silver bars. In reality, the agio at issue is such that that the silver price would have to rise improbably before you'd even start making a profit. You would be better off with a silver-based ETA if you can find and buy it. However, you'd have to have an improbably large portfolio before you could think of including precious metals unless you have an improbable risk appetite.

Note that some of the items presented in this thread are not very commemorative either. That said, who is to say what someone else may collect?

While I do not actually disagree, just replace the word "investment" with "bullion", and you're there. ;) Have a look at the Russian central bank's website, and you will see that this is the term they use. "For the first time in 1996 Russian citizens were offered investment coins on domestic market: a gold uncirculated Chervonets coin of 1975-1982 years of issue and a silver coin of 1995 year of issue, featuring the Sable."

In a similar way, the euro folks have, apart from the circulation pieces, "commemorative coins" and "collector coins". The terms themselves may be confusing first, but they make the differentiation easier. :)

 :like:

"Chervonets" and "Sable" - these are official investment coins.
All other coins are commemorative.

100th Anniversary of the GOELRO Plan

The GOELRO (State Commission for the Electrification of Russia) was established on 21 February 1920 to develop a plan for the electrification of the country after the October Revolution of 1917. The Russian-language abbreviation is often interpreted as the State Plan for the Electrification of Russia, i.e. the plan drafted by the GOELRO, which became the first forward-looking economic development plan adopted and implemented in Russia after the Revolution.
As energy infrastructure construction in Russia expanded, experts became increasingly convinced that the country needed a single national plan that would connect industrial development in the regions with energy infrastructure development, as well as with the electrification of transport and utility services.
To solve the problem of creating a single plan for the national economic recovery and development, which arose after the Revolution, Vladimir Lenin focused on the electrification. In 1920, the GOELRO Commission – the State Plan for the Electrification of Russia – was established. The Commission was chaired by Gleb Krzhizhanovsky – an energy scientist and author of the 'Industrial Electrification Goals' paper. In December 1920, at the extended meeting of the Commission, a plan was developed and approved.
It included a single programme to revive and develop the country and specific industries – primarily the heavy industry – mostly by means of raising productivity as much as possible. The plan strongly emphasised the role of electrification in the development of industry, construction, transport and agriculture. It ordered to use mostly local fuels, including low-value coals, peat, shale, gas and timber.
The so-called 'Programme A' of the GOELRO Plan, which provided for the recovery of the country's ruined energy economy, was completed in 1926. By 1931, the minimum ten-year deadline of the Programme, all energy construction targets had been exceeded. By 1935, which was the end of the fifteen-year term, the Soviet energy industry had reached the global standards and taken the third place in the world after the USA and Germany.
The GOELRO Plan became the very first national plan in Russia and paved the way for the planning system in the USSR. It anticipated the theory, methods and agenda of future five-year plans.

Something went wrong with the description of the side pictured on the right. This piece is not for the Chamber of Accounts.

Poet A.A. Fet – 200th Anniversary of his Birth (05.12.1820)

Afanasy Afanasyevich Fet (1820–1892) was a Russian poet, translator, memoirist, and a corresponding member of the St. Petersburg Academy of Sciences (1886).
Fet studied at home, however, he absorbed most of his knowledge from nature, peasant and rural life. Later he enrolled in the Faculty of History and Philology at the Moscow University, where he began to write poetry. Professor Mikhail Pogodin showed his poems to Nikolai Gogol and soon received an opinion from the famous writer: 'undoubtedly gifted'.
In 1840, the first Fet's poetry collection called 'Lyric Pantheon' was published. It included ballads, elegies, idylls and epitaphs. The collection was praised by critics Vissarion Belinsky, Pyotr Kudryavtsev, and poet Yevgeny Baratynsky. A year later, Fet's poems were regularly appearing in the Moskvityanin – a literary review by Pogodin – and in the Otechestvennye Zapiski magazine.
In 1850, Fet published his second poetry collection, which was praised by major Russian magazines. Soon, the Sovremennik magazine started to publish Fet's poems. In 1856, the book 'Poems by A.A. Fet' saw the light. Encouraged by his success, Fet began writing long poems, poetry novels, prose, as well as travel essays and critical reviews. Also, he translated works by Heinrich Heine, Johann Goethe, André Chénier, Adam Mickiewicz and other poets. In 1863, Fet published another book – a two-volume collection of his poetry. Some critics enjoyed the book, noting the author's 'great lyrical talent', others replied with harsh articles and parodies. In 1883, after a twenty-year break, a new poetry book called 'Evening Lights' was published. By this time, Fet had accepted the fact that his works were 'not for everyone'.
In the final years of his life, the poet received public recognition. In 1884, he became the first winner of the full Pushkin Prize of the Imperial Academy of Sciences for translations of Horace's works. Two years later, Fet was elected its corresponding member. In 1888, Afanasy Fet was personally introduced to Emperor Alexander III and was awarded the court title of chamberlain.
