    200th Anniversary of the Founding of St Petersburg, Table Medal in Bronze - 1903.

    200th Anniversary of the Founding of St Petersburg, Table Medal in Bronze - 1903.

    64.7 mm wide; weighs 125.0 grams. Unsigned but engraved by Vasyuntinsky. Obverse shows conjoined busts of Peter I and Nicholas II. Reverse shows allegorical female figure and an imperial eagle floating over the skyline of St. Petersburg; "In Memory of Foundation of the City of St. Petersburg 16 May 1703 - 1903"

    In fine to very fine condition. Nice color, only one minor edge knock on the obverse at seven o'clock and a minor knock on the reverse at twelve, there are minor bumps on the faces of both emperors and a dark area on Peter's neck.

    The Mint in St. Petersburg made a copy of this medal in 2003 in a smaller size; the presence of the mint's current hallmark on one side plus the overall flatter look of the copy would keep anyone from mistaking it for one of the 1903 originals.

    /Mikhail Dyakov, "Medals of the Russian Empire, Part 7, 1894-1917", page 234, fig. 1370.1/
