The 10 Chervonetz Gold Rubles are the only gold coin minted by the Soviet Union and intended for circulation. Coining resumed in 1975 and ended again in 1982 as the Soviet Union needed foreign capital. The gross weight of this coin is 8.605 grams, it has a gold fineness of 900/1000 (21 carats) and therefore has a fine gold content of 7.7446 grams. The name Chervonetz means "red coin" as all these coins contain a percentage equal to 10% of copper which gives the coin its typical reddish color and greater scratch resistance. The obverse of this coin shows a farmer carrying a basket of seeds with his left arm and intent on sowing the field with his right hand. To the left of the farmer there is a plow and the rising sun on the horizon while to the right of the farmer there is an industrial plant with smoking chimneys. On the lower edge there is the year of minting while on the upper one there is the denomination of the coin (10 rubles - Cyrillic alphabet). The reverse of the coin features the rising sun in the background and the hammer and sickle above it. The two symbols are framed by a crown of ears of wheat. On the lower edge is the Cyrillic acronym PCOCP (RSFSR) which means Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic and the phrase "Workers of all countries, unite!" in Russian within a circle of raised dots.
