This is a 1979 USSR (Union of Soviet Socialist Republic) Mint Coin Set issued by the Leningrad Mint in its original presentation case & folder. It contains nine coins with denominations from 1 Kopek to 1 Rouble along with the Leningrad Mint token (diamond-shape) and the date ingot (Russian one side, English on reverse) as described below:
(Y#'s are from the Krause & Mishler Standard Catalog of World Coins)
Y# 126a - 1 Kopek - Brass * (see note below)
Y# 127a - 2 Kopeks - Brass * (see note below)
Y# 128a - 3 Kopeks - Aluminum-Bronze
Y# 129a - 5 Kopeks - Aluminum-Bronze
