The Russian Saint George bullion coin program dates back to 2006. During this initial year, the Bank of Russia issued only a gold coin. These 2018 1 oz Russian Silver Saint George Coins represent the sixth overall release of the silver coins for sale in this collection. The Bank of Russia debuted the silver coin in 2009 but did not produce it between 2011 and 2014.
Despite its spotty production history, the Russian Saint George coin series is a popular one that has typically been hard to find outside of Eastern Europe. Now though, Wallace Precious Metals offers both this silver version of the coin and a gold option as well.
On the reverse face of the 2018 Russian Silver Saint George Coins, youll find the crowned, double-headed eagle from the coat of arms of the Russian Federation.

However, the double-headed eagle has long been a part of that coat of arms.
The obverse side of the 2018 1 oz Russian Silver Saint George Coins is the popular vision of Saint George on horseback as he slays a dragon.
