The kopeck is the subdivision of the ruble, the Russian currency, and this expression actually comes from the fact that in the West, its value is rather low (100 kopecks ~$0.03 US) and Westerners make fun of it this way.
The ruble, or «roubit» (meaning «to chop») in Russian appeared in the 13th century; at the time, small pieces of silver ingot were chopped up with a hatchet to carry out transactions.
