Of those familiar with Russian currency I ask: were any Romanovs, reigning or not, ever depicted on Russian ruble notes? Or on coins for that matter? I know some appeared on stamps, including Nicholas II, but on circulating currency? Also, one wonders about the prospect of seeing an Imperial face on , say, the 100 ruble note, now that the Imperial Era  is viewed more favorably in present-day Russia.

Response:  There are multiple resources on-line to which you can turn to see images of what you seek, especially on coins.  For paper currency, one source that you can consult is the following:  "Banknotes.com - Russia 500 Rubles - 1912 - Bank Notes, Paper Money ......."   Once you have this illustration, go to upper left and click on "Russia Banknote Gallery."  You will find other examples there by era and date, many common and others not-so-common.  In response to the second part of your inquiry:  In my opinion, I would feel that the potential of an "Imperial face" appearing in the near future on present-day paper currency, would be only those of the historically-revered earlier Emperors/Empresses.    AP

The reigning Romanovs were usually on the coins.  Here is my posting from a related question you can see the reigning Romanov on each coin:

Just for grins, here are four silver Imperial Rubles from the 18th century, I bought for Bob years ago.  I don't know if they are real or not, they look it, but they were not expensive.  I think I paid maybe $15  each.

From left to right:
1757 Elisabeth I     1752 Elisabeth I     1749  Elisabeth I     1733  Anna Ivanovna





not sure why they are smaller here. the original images are actual size...If anyone wants to see the full size images, I can send them to you.

I can add my 1896 silver Ruble:



Rob, do you happen to know in what year Nicholas II's profile first appeared on imperial coins?

Rob,

Those coins are pretty neat and apparently in good condition. In comparison it's frequently quite hard to read the lettering and even more so the date on pre-WWII US coins. And just offhand I'd say 15$ each was a real steal for coins of that period, assuming they're authentic.

At the beginning of this thread several people asked about film of Ella. In the documentary Hosts of White Duchesses - on Frozentears http://www.frozentears.org/Sasha/Spikes/White.Duchesses.01.m4v
23:30-50 - is that Ella and Wilhelm?
