The most precious ship

This time we present the largest and most valued coins with a ship borne on the Baltic shores and registered in a Baltic port.

In 2006, the Bank of Russia issued two coins with the sailing ship Mir built in 1987 in Gdańsk and homeported in St. Petersburg. The silver item (100 rubles) weighs one kilogram, has a diameter of 100 mm and a thickness of 15 mm; overall 500 pieces were minted. If you would like to build a tower with them (why not?), you would have a 7.5 metre high construction in the end.

The gold coin (1,000 rubles) weighs 156 grams, its diameter is 50 mm, thickness 5.7 mm and mintage resulted in 250 pieces only. A tower with less than 1.5 meter is not worth the effort of our imagination…
