December 12 is a special day for employees of the St. Petersburg Mint, the oldest enterprise in Goznak.
This date is to some extent conditional. There is no doubt only that the first coins in St. Petersburg were minted 295 years ago - in 1724. They were silver rubles with the profile of Peter the Great, on which the letters "S." were placed. "P.B." - to indicate where they were minted. Since then, for almost 300 years in St. Petersburg - Petrograd - Leningrad - St. Petersburg coins have been minting.
