CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITYDuring the Great Depression, Joseph Stalin decreed all hard currency silver coins in circulation be replaced by base-metalissues. This met with resistance. People hoarded the silver coins, and bank cashiers responsible for their confiscation were not as successful as Stalin expected. “The results of the battle againstthe coin shortage are almost nonexistent,\" Stalin wrote to his protégé, V.M. Molotov. The agents \"probably clamped down ona few cashiers and let it go at that....It is thus important to fundamentally purge the Finance Ministry and the Central Bankbureaucracy. Definitely shoot two or three dozen from these, including several dozen common cashiers.\" Stalin\'s cold-bloodedstrategy worked. This silver 20 kopek coin, KM-88, is among the few, rare survivors of this period. The Soviets never again issued a circulating silver coin.
