    Default What does this Russian medal stand for?

    I have this medal, but no idea what it stands for. Obviously it is a 265 years memorial medal, but that is ALL I know. Your help would be appreciated. Is it rare, or common? It comes in a wooden box with a plexiglass cover. It is approx. 8 cm in diameter.

    Hi Bob, Pierre is correct. It gives the town names of "Reval - Tallinn" in Estonia. I would imagine it is not rare and would be a souvenir type item. I am sure Dimas might be able to tell you a little more.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Another worthless soviet medal, I guess. I have quite a few of them, and none of them are worth anything...

    Yes. That is a commemorative medal. The Estonia is a part of Russia from 1710 year, after the North war, before Estonia was a part of Sweden. The czar Peter 1 establish in Reval Russian fleet, then builded a new sea port in Paldiski( Baltiski port pre 1918 year) and that medal is 265 years from establishing of the fleet in Tallinn. In the war time the Tallinn was a head base of Baltic fleet

    I disagree with your claim that it is worthless... These are not being produced any longer, and I assume that none will be produced in the foreseeable future either...
