There is one instance from gold

1½ Rubles, 1835. Family Ruble. Large head of the Emperor r., legend 1½ RUBLE - 10 ZLOT. Rv. Empress Marie's head r. in central circle, seven children's heads around without circles. There is a bold rim break along lower right edge. This magnificent design concept was inspired by the Bavarian Blessings of Heaven Taler of 1828 and exists in several distinct varieties. Delicate russet enriches the boldly reflective prooflike surfaces and the meticulously detailed reliefs. The children shown are Alexander (later Emperor Alexander II), Maria, Olga, Alexandra, Constantine, Nicholas and Michael. The younger six all married members of the German nobility; Olga alone married a reigning sovereign, as Queen Consort of Karl I of Württemberg.

Exceedingly rare and the second most elusive of the Family Ruble issues. One of the true rarities of Russian numismatics with a mintage of only 36 pieces. Estimate: $100,000 - $125,000.
