    New ruble bills



    Russia’s Central Bank and the National Mint Goznak unveiled new 200- and 2,000-ruble bills on Thursday.

    The front side of the new banknotes are fitted with a QR code which links to the bank’s website where there is detailed information on their artistic design and security features.



    Speaking at a Moscow-Vladivostok-Sevastopol teleconference from the state-run TASS news agency’s office, Central Bank chairwoman Elvira Nabiullina said the bills will begin circulating in December.

    “First in October, the new banknotes will be received in the regions that are depicted on them: the Far East, Crimea, as well as Moscow,” Nabiullina said.

    The 200- and 2,000-ruble bills will enter into circulation in stages after banks and businesses upgrade their technology to accommodate them, she said.

    Following a public vote, the Chersonesus museum-reserve in the annexed Crimean peninsula and Sevastopol’s Monument to the Scuttled Ships were chosen to be featured on the 200-ruble bill. Vostochny Cosmodrome and a cable-stayed bridge connecting mainland Russia’s Vladivostok with Russky Island are featured on the 2,000-ruble bill.

    Back in December 2015, a 100 ruble bill was already issued in honor Crimea, and specifically - Sevastopol

    20 million of those are now in circulation.

    Before that, back in 2014, not long after Crimea was retaken, collectible 10 ruble coins were also issued to commemorate this


    As for Vostochny, not sure it was on any money before.

    I like the two-tone coins... Wish our own currency was as neat-looking. Of course, we have just four coins in regular circulation in the States (with an effort to reduce it to three). The EU has eight coins, which has the side effect of shopkeepers trying to give you fistfulls of coins as change, rather than bills.

    Canadian toonies ($2) are like that, two-tone

    This one just came out this year, they actually glow in the dark; and designed by guys from my own Canadian hometown!
