COIN collector Keith Young from Bromyard has been able to shed some light on the mysterious Russian coin, belonging to Alec Haines, that we featured a few weeks back.

Keith tells us that it's a five kopek piece, minted at Ekaterinburg, now Sverdlovsk, in the Urals, probably between 1768 and 1779.

Keith says this coin used to be quite scarce but more have arrived in the West since the fall of communism.

He estimates its worth at around £10.
