Sold Want to Buy This?

The Moscow Olympic silver coins (5 rouble & 10 rouble) were issued over a 4 year period starting in 1977. A total of 14 silver 5 rouble and 14 silver 10 rouble coins were minted. The 10 rouble coins are 39 mm diameter, 3.3 mm thick (a bit larger & fatter than a U.S. silver dollar), 33.3 grams total weight - 90% silver. This coin - part of series five - Sports & Beauty - was issued in 1980 & shows two Greco-Roman wrestling competitors in the foreground on the front/obverse of the coin. On the back/reverse is the coin denomination & the USSR emblem. This is a mirror finish coin in very good/excellent condition - a small amount of haze on both sides - see dark contrast photos. Shipped in hard plastic coin capsule. Additional note: Silver/silvertone mirror proof coins have a shiny silver reflective background. The photos taken of mirror proof coins may appear to have a blackish or grayish-black background because of the camera angle chosen to highlight the design & any surface imperfections. The coin background is silver - not black or gray. Will combine shipping for multiple purchases
