1985 USSR Soviet Union Russia Proof One Ruble 40th Anniversary of WWII Victory


This coin comes from the Soviet Union in the late Chernenko/early Gorbachev period, complete with the hammer and sickle on both obverse and reverse. This one Ruble proof celebrates the 40th anniversary of allied victory in World War II. This is an interesting coin, from a historical period in Soviet/American relations. Little was known in the US about what was going on in the USSR during this period, as it was before glasnost and the gradual opening of the Soviet Union to the western world.

This is a proof coin, struck sharply with cameo contrast between frosted devices and reflective fields, but with some haze in the reflective fields. There are some rainbow colors in the fields when this coin is tilted at an angle to the light. The design is replete with Soviet symbols, and makes an interesting historical memento.
