1 and 5 Kopeks are rarely used due to their low value and in some cases may not be accepted by stores or individuals. These coins began being issued in 1998, although some of them bear the year 1997. In 2008, it was proposed by the Bank of Russia to withdraw 1 and 5 Kopeks from circulation and to round all the prices to multiples of 10 Kopeks, although the proposal hasn't been realized yet.
