In Russia, new banknotes will appear – their release is linked to the upcoming World Cup. This was told by the general director of Goznak, Arkady Trachuk
According to him, these will be memorable banknotes worth 100 rubles. On the question of when the notes will go into circulation and in how many a souvenir banknote will be issued, he was at a loss to answer.
“I can not give a specific date for issuing banknotes, this will be determined by the Bank of Russia. We can assume that this will happen before the opening of the championship, “Trachuk said, adding that the presentation of the bill will take place at the end of May.
“Memorable banknotes are made according to special principles. Their circulation is limited in advance, and, as a rule, it is relatively small, “Goznak’s general director emphasized.
Recall that last year the Central Bank introduced and introduced new notes worth 200 and 2000 rubles.
In 2015 it was reported that the Central Bank plans to issue a special series of coins for the 2018 World Cup. Then the first deputy chairman of the Central Bank George Luntovsky did not rule out that the issue of banknotes for the 2018 World Cup is also quite possible.
Earlier, the Central Bank of Russia had already issued commemorative coins dedicated to the football world championships. In addition, a large issue of coins was awarded to the XXVII World Summer Universiade 2013 in Kazan. To the Games in Sochi, dozens of various gold and silver coins and a 100 rubles banknote were issued.
