The obverse face of the 1/4 oz Proof Palladium Russian Ballerinas includes a depiction of an elegant, strong dancer. The ballet is now central to Russian culture and a source of national pride, but this was not always the case. Prior to the 18th century, the Russian Empire was closed off to the cultural influences of Western European nations and empires. When it opened up, the ballet was one of the first cultural influences to gain a foothold.
On the reverse side of 1/4 oz Proof Palladium Ballerinas is an image of the hammer and sickle. These famous symbols from the Soviet flag were used on the reverse of the coins each year along with the denomination of the coins.
