Altyn

 

(from Tatar altyn, gold), a small, old Russian coin and monetary unit.

An altyn was originally equivalent to six Moscow or three Novgorod den’gas. Den’gas later came to be called kopecks. A derivative of “altyn” is the word piatialtynnyi (five-altyn coin), which is still used for a coin worth fifteen kopecks. The first copper coin with the inscription altynnik was issued in 1654, and silver altyns were minted from 1704 to 1726.
