The 1 kopek coin (spelled as 1 kopeek in the Standard Catalog of World Coins) is a coin that was issued in 2000 by the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic, or Transnistria, a breakaway territory in Moldova. It was later withdrawn from circulation in 2009. With a value of only 0.01 rubles, it is the lowest denominated coin ever issued by Transnistria.

The coin is composed of aluminum, weighs approximately 0.62 grams, and has a diameter of 16 millimeters and a thickness of 1.5 millimeters. It uses medallic alignment and, like most coins, is round in shape. Featured in the center of the obverse is the initialed version of the coat of arms of Transnistria — which shows a rising sun with a hammer and sickle and a five-pointed star above, all surrounded by a wreath consisting of wheat, corn, grapes, clovers, and fruit, and a banner with the Cyrillic lettering "ПМР РМН ПМР". Encircling the depiction, around the coin's rim, is the Russian state title "ПРИДНЕСТРОВСКАЯ МОЛДАВСКАЯ РЕСПУБЛИКА" (Pridnestrovskaia Moldavskaia Respublika), which translates to English as "Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic". The date is printed at the bottom of the coin. Engraved in the middle of the reverse is the coin's value in Russian, "1 КOРEЙKA" (1 kopejka), with the number and denomination printed on their own lines and the former being much larger than the latter. It is flanked by a spike of wheat on each side. The coin bears a plain edge.

The 1 kopek coin was minted in Poland. The mintage is currently unknown.
