The Russian term Chervonets is a former currency of the Russian Empire and Soviet Union, originally a term for coins of purer alloy. Throughout the years the name was applied to various Russian coins.
These golden 10 Roubles Chervonetz, also called "chervontsy" were struck again before the 1980 Olympic games and the Central Bank hoped the coins would compete with the South African Krugerrand. In 2001 the Gold Chervonets were granted official legal tender status. A couple years later the stock of the Central Bank's vaults came to an end and in 2006 the new investment coin featuring the portrait of Saint George the Victorious was introduced.
