Comments

Sovereignty of Norway over all the arctic archipelago of Svalbard including Spitsbergen islands (1920-)
However, 40 signatory countries of the 1920 treaty have the right to conduct commercial activities on the archipelago without discrimination.
Accordingly, Trust Arktikugol (literally "Arctic Coal") is a Russian coal mining company which operates on the islands of Spitsbergen in Svalbard, Norway and has independence over its activities (1920 treaty).
Rouble coins (token) for use by company employees were legal tenders.
First Rouble (1922-1991) had Kopeyki coins issues and Second Rouble (1991-1997) has only Rouble coins issues.
