Peter the Great was the last Russian ruler to issue Wire Money. Wire Money are small shapes of metal that were rolled and then cut into sections. The term Wire Money was derived from the minting technique used.
Most of the coins are under .3 grams in weight. Peter the Great, 1689-1725, terminated the use of Wire Money.
The Russian Wire Money comes displayed in a protective sealed acrylic case.
