One of the first Western cultural influences to infiltrate Russia when it began to open up more to the outside world in the 18th century was the ballet. This elegant, sometimes delicate form of dance proved popular in Russia and was adopted with open arms. Over time, Russian ballet has come to serve as a symbol of sorts for the strength and discipline Russia hopes to emulate in its national culture. Provident Metals now has Proof Russian Ballerina 1 oz Palladium Coins available to you for purchase online.
When you purchase a Proof Russian Ballerina 1 oz Palladium Coin through this Provident Metals listing, the coin you receive comes in a plastic flip. Each one is a proof specimen with frosted fields on the design element and mirrored background fields. These coins come from random years and are selected using our discretion.
Once your payment has been cleared, Provident Metals selects a 1 oz coin for you from our available stock. We are not able to guarantee a particular date and design in advance. It is possible to receive coins with the same images on the obverse and the same date marks when you buy several coins through this listing.
The obverse face of all Proof Russian Ballerina 1 oz Palladium Coins features an image of a ballet dancer. This series is notable as being one of the first in the world to use new designs on one side with each release. The image of the ballet dancer changes for each date mark, creating collectability even among the BU specimens in the series. The coins have inscriptions in Cyrillic only that often identify the nation of issue and the word ballet.
On the reverse side of Proof Russian Ballerina Palladium Coins, you will find a depiction of the sickle and hammer of the Soviet Union. Long featured on the Soviet flag and government seals, the hammer and sickle continued to feature on the reverse of these coins even after the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991. Again, inscriptions are featured in Cyrillic and do include an Arabic numeral for the face value.
The Russian Ballerina Series debuted in 1989 and took advantage of the vast natural deposits of palladium that exist in Russia. The collection continued after the fall of the Soviet empire in 1991, and was issued through 1995.
