Look at this one...


Let's just say this coin is more beautiful than I ever imagined from the pictures I saw before I decided to purchase it. This is the 2009 Russian 3 Ruble Silver coin, 31.1 g in weight of 99.9% pure silver. The design is stunning! I have a 1998 5 Kopek unslabbed coin of the same design, but when you see it blown up to these proportions, the detail is breathtaking.


The obverse design is a rendition of the famous scene of St. George slaughtering the dragon. The coin was designed and sculpted by A. V. Baklanov and minted at Saint Petersburg. As you guessed, this one is going to become a favorite of my horse-themed custom set.

That is a true beauty. The lack of legends on the obverse makes the design stand out even more. Bravo, a great addition.
