  • remarks
    The 2nd Class measures ca. 50x65mm. Since the creation of the Order, the insignia of the order had undergone substantial variations in respect to size and design.The Value of higher-end Russian Orders varies greatly; value depends on period and quality of manufacture, maker and the provenance; as well as value of Russian currency and general economic situation in Russia.


The Order of St. Anne was founded in memory of Schleswig-Holstein's wife Anna Petrovna (daughter of Peter the Great). Emperor Paul I established the Order as purely Russian. It was initially awarded for distinguished civil merit, and was expanded as a military award for war service after 1855.

The award was conferred by Duke Frederick of Schleswig-Holstein in memory of his wife Anna Petrovna, and was not considered a Russian award. The Type I Order was awarded to only one Colonel, the Col. E.I. Vlastov.

The insignia of St. Anne on the cross and on the star was changed to the Imperial Eagle when awarded to non-Christians.
