Monetary Reform of the Russian Empire in the Historography of the Second Half of the Nineteenth – the Beginning of the Twentieth Century

Among other financial reforms of the above-mentioned period, monetary reform caused the greatest debate among specialists who argued about the feasibility of introducing gold monometallism. Historiography of monetary reform makes it possible to distinguish two key stages: 1) 1862 — 1863; 2) 1895 — 1897, with a significant break between them. Assessments of the reform carried out depending on the social affiliation of the authors provided a special historiography color of this topic. The middle layers of the population and the landlords did not accept the reform, the big bourgeoisie supported it. For the most part, the issue was covered in the introduction of the gold standard and the perception or objection to the devaluation of paper money
