Description

Collection of silver medals "Great Princes, Tsars and Emperors of Russia" "Portrait, historical collection" - medals with images of Great Princes, Tsars, Empresses and Emperors of Russia from 862 to 1894 - one of the most important ideological events of Empress Catherine II in the field of medal art. The appearance of the portrait series of medals was associated with the Empress's interest in Russian history and medal art. Under her reign in 1768-1774, a series of fifty-nine round medals with portraits of Russian princes and tsars (according to the catalog of V.P. Smirnov - 58 items, under number 12 two medals) was created - from Rurik to Peter III. The basis for its creation was the "Brief Russian Chronicle" of M.V. Lomonosov and a series of portraits of Russian princes and tsars, engraved by I. Dorsh on green jasper. The obverse of each medal features a bust portrait of a prince or tsar with a circular inscription containing his name and title. The reverse side features an inscription from the "Brief Russian Chronicle" indicating how the grand ducal or tsarist throne was inherited and listing the main events and achievements of the ruler. Overall, the portrait series of medals served as a kind of visual aid and demonstrated the main idea of M.V. Lomonosov's composition about the advantages of autocratic rule for Russia, in which he saw the guarantee of the "bliss" and "prosperity" of the Motherland. In the 19th century, six more medals with images of reigning sovereigns from Catherine II to Alexander III were included in the portrait series. In 2007-2008, the St. Petersburg Mint of Goznak resumed the minting of medals from the portrait series based on the preserved historical instruments. The collection was supplemented with medals missing from the historical series, depicting John VI and Nicholas II. Thus, the collection now consists of 67 medals.
