How neat! Now, these gentlemen who inherited the coins - were they some type of royalty or something? Sorry if this is off topic, but it is technically concerning the coins . . . I think! :-[

This gentlemen is a very famous russian writer and I can not disclose his name.
You are right, this is his collection and concerns only him.

Hi there. I have this 1839 Russian gold coin. It came from a wealthy lady who passed away
and her family was from Russian here in Virginia.My girlfriend took care of the lady for a year
or so and her family gave the coin to my girlfriend. If you please help me to estimate this coin.
I have a local dealer who wants to buy it., thanks and take care. Robert.

This is a letter I received and now here is the response:

Dear Robert,

1839 Russian Imperal Gold Coin a rare one but it was converted to a jewelry pendant,
and it is worth much less than the original coin. The price of gold is now at $1720 an ounce.
I would say you can sell it to a dealer or on Ebay auction for approximately $ 700 to $1000.

Regards,imperialrussia.

Correction, the price of gold keeps going up. It is now $1749 an ounce. I would hold to it and
not sell it, at this uncertain time. The stocks are very weak and gold will continue to go up.

We are talking about the price of gold only. But if you want to be sure you are buying an original and not a
copy, always buy graded coins by major grading companies.
