The catalog "Tokens of 1917" presents more than 250 objects of medal art in color, which are systematized by three time periods: the reign of Nicholas I, the stay in power of the Provisional Government and the rule of the Bolsheviks. The tokens were issued in memory of the most striking, crucial, politically important events, so the author sought to preserve the chronological sequence in the structure of the catalog. The main part of the catalog was the own collection of Igor Rudenko, a famous collector of tokens of imperial Russia. The undoubted value of the publication is also the fact that the author has combined on the pages of the catalog scattered collections of tokens from 1917, stored in various museums around the world and from private collectors.
The publication includes extensive historical material - explanatory notes and comments. Navigation in the book is simple and convenient, as tokens have end-to-end numbering, a search engine for legends and obverse tokens provides easy orientation in information and visual material.
