Buy the kopeks of a reformer who met a tragic death!

He received the nickname "Tsar Liberator" during his lifetime: Alexander II. As Tsar of Russia, he abolished serfdom in the course of the "Great Reforms" and comprehensively modernized the country. The coin offered is from the year of the reform of the city government. The tsar was not idle in foreign policy either. Thus, in 1873, he concluded the Three Emperors' Agreement with Germany and Austria-Hungary. Alexander II was finally assassinated by a grenade in 1881. This assassination was preceded a few minutes earlier by another, which, however, the tsar survived unharmed.
