History

The Emmision Protection Law was necessitated by the instability of the monetary system, which hindered the development of Russia’s domestic and foreign economic relations and the inflow of foreign capital. Preparations for the reform began in the 1880s. The Russian Finance Minister S.Y. Witte proposed the introduction of gold circulation in a report to the tsar in 1895. By 1897, through tax increases, gold mining and purchasing, and foreign borrowing, the State Bank had created a gold stock of 1.095 million rubles, almost equal to the amount of banknotes in circulation in the country. According to the decree “On the minting and circulation of gold coins” of January 3, 1897, imperial and semi-imperial gold coins were minted with a new face value of 15 rubles and 7.5 rubles, respectively, but the ruble was devalued by 1/3. At November 4, 1897, 5-ruble gold coins with a fine gold content of 3.87 g were introduced, and December 11, 1898, 10-ruble coins with a fine gold content of 7.74 g were introduced. The gold ruble was considered the unit of currency. On August 29, 1897, Tsar Nicholas II issued a decision on the issuing operations of the Russian State Bank, which was given the right to issue banknotes. The decision of March 27, 1898 retained the silver and copper money introduced by E. Kankrin’s reform. The reform changed the structure of money in circulation. This was followed by a period of a very stable financial system in Russia.
