The proposed multi-volume edition is devoted to tokens for the events of Russian history - monuments known since the end of the XVIII century as a small form of a medal. The author sought not only to systematically present the complete collection of Russian tokens, but also to give a certain historical panorama in the context of which these unique works of medal art were created. Images of objects are accompanied by a description of the obverse and reverse, information about the weight, size, degree of rarity, place of minting and storage, as well as about historical events and people to whom they are dedicated.
The analysis of the numismatic material array made it possible to systematize tokens by thematic sign, which allowed to show their diversity, functional variety and specific features.
This publication is based on the results of survey work in numismatic collections of museums of the world, supplemented by collectible material from private collections. Some images of tokens are being shown for the first time.
The book is provided with extensive reference material, historical documents, an image search engine and legends. The catalog will find its readers from among museum workers, collectors who are passionate about numismatics, and historians.
