an aluminum-bronze coin of Russia, the Soviet Union, and its successor states, the 100th part of a ruble.
a monetary unit of Russia and Belarus worth one hundredth of a rouble: coins are still used as tokens for coin-operated machinery although the kopeck itself is virtually valueless

1/100 of a ruble, from Russian kopeika, from kop’e “lance” (cognate with Greek kopis “chopper, cleaver;” see hatchet); so called because the coin showed the czar with lance in hand.
