This 1988 Russian 4-coin tri-metal set commemorates a major milestone, the 1000th anniversary of the Christianization of Russia, then known as the Kievan Rus in what is now the Ukraine. This set includes two 1 ounce silver coins, a 1 ounce palladium coin, and a 1/2 ounce platinum coin each dedicated to a different aspect of the millennium-old culture of Russia.

While this coin set honors the conversion of Prince Vladimir of Kiev in 988, the first Russian royalty can actually be traced back to the conquest of the area around Novgorod by the Swedish viking, Rurik, in 862. Over time, the "Rus," as the intrusive Norse were called, assimilated with the Slavic peoples indigenous to the area and established a loose federation of autonomous towns ruled by princes. Over time, as a result of proximity to and diplomatic ties with the Byzantine Empire to the south, the inhabitants of the Kievan Rus became exposed to Christianity. Christianity was recognized as the official religion of the area after the baptism of Prince Vladimir the Great at the behest of the Byzantine Emperor, Basil II.

The set's 25 rouble one ounce palladium coin features a reverse design that memorializes this watershed event. The reverse depicts the monument to the canonized Saint Vladimir located in Kiev, Ukraine, which stands on the bank of the Dneiper River.

The remaining coins in the set celebrate other aspects of Russia's cultural heritage. The reverses of the two 3 rouble one ounce silver coins feature the two sides of a coin issued by Vladimir the Great during his reign and the Cathedral of St. Sophia in Kiev. The coin containing the image of Prince Vladimir's coinage honors 1000 years of Russia's numismatic history while the coin picturing St. Sophia's Cathedral salutes nearly a millenium of Russian architecture. St. Sophia's Cathedral was begun in 1011.

The design of the set's half ounce platinum coin, carrying a denomination of 150 roubles, commemorates the deep and rich history of Russian literature. The coin's reverse depicts a chronicler scribing the epic poem, The Tale of Igor's Campaign, which tells the tale of a raid by the Rus Prince Igor in 1185.

The obverse of each coin in the set contains the national arms of the Soviet Union, along with inscriptions identifying their nation of issue and their denomination.

Celebrate over 1000 years of Russian and Ukrainian history with this 4-coin set containing two ounces of silver, one ounce of palladium, and a half ounce of platinum. Any serious collector of Russian and Soviet coinage should jump at this set, proudly offered by Gainesville Coins. Be sure to buy this 1988 Russian 4-coin tri-metal set today.
