The diameter os the one rouble coins: 31mm. This one marks 70 years of the revolution in 1917. So this was minted in 1987. On the reverse we can see the year 1917. We can also see 70 let , with let meaning years in Russian, the soviet symbol of hammer and sickle. USSR was a communist country. The hammer symbolizes the worker or the labourer and the sickle stands for the farmer.

The ship shown in the picture is most probably Admiral Gorshkov, the aircraft carrier of the soviet union.
