Копейка-/Ko'peyka/-Kopeck

 

You know that dollars and euros consist of 100 cents. A pound is composed of 100 pennies. I presume you are interested to know a smaller monetary unit of ruble.One ruble is equal to 100 kopecks.We have already revealed the meaning of ruble. But what  does kopeck mean? It refers to the image of a rider, St. George spearing the dragon. Kopeck derives from the Russian word "копьё" (spear) which is seen on the modern coins and on those minted by Moscow after the capture of Novgorod in 1478.  Having a few kopecks in your pocket you will not be able to buy anything. 

Ask your Moscow tour guide about the best spots to exchange your banknotes into Russian currency.
