In Russland pressen sie riesige Putin-Kilo-Silbermünzen zur Feier der Annexion der Krim. „The Mint Refers To The New Coin As '1 KG Of Nobility'“. Party like its 1888!
Silver coins with the face of Russian President Vladimir Putin are being minted in Russia. The coins weigh one kilogram (1kg - 2.2lb) and are being launched by the Art Grani foundry to mark Crimea’s reincorporation into Russia.
The private mint that produces the coins said it is planning to present some of them to the Russian leadership. The coins are commemorative in nature and are a limited edition of 500 silver coins initially. The factory states that some of the coins may be sold, but they won’t be used as currency.
