Coins of this type developed in 1760, when count P. I. Shuvalov proposed a project to increase the mint of the foot 2 times (up to 32 rubles from pounds of copper).

Minted Polushka, Denga, kopeck, 2 kopecks, 5 kopecks. Pereselenka was conducted on the main mints of the time: Saint Petersburg, Krasny Dvor in Moscow, Yekaterinburg and on the Sestroretsk arms factory and at the temporary mints in Yaroslavl, Nizhny Novgorod, in the village of Porechye, Smolensk governorate.

Because of the image of military fittings, coins of this type have received unofficial names "drum" and "reinforcement". In 1763 Catherine the great ordered the return of the old weight coins, and then almost weight the period of her reign were pereselenka with a return to former value, but with new patterns and monogram of Catherine.
