Russia to issue its new notes in October 2017?

The Central Bank of Russia anounced last year that new 200- and 2,000-ruble banknotes would be issued in 2017. The public chose the themes of Sevastopol and Kazan to be on the two new banknotes. Sevastopol has the Monument to the Scuttled Ships and Chersonesus as its local themes. For Kazan it's the Kremlin and the Kazan Federal University

It's now looks like the two new notes will be issued in October 2017. One of the notes will be a polymer note, according to the central bank’s First Deputy Chairman Georgy Luntovsky

On a side note: if Russia was still a part of the USSR we would have seen quite different banknotes I think, marking the 100th anniversary of the October Revolution (or November Revolution in the New Style) in October/November of this year.

Update 11-10-2017: the notes will be presented on 12 October 2017 and could be issued before the end of the year.

Hi, Steven!
Interesting idea about the USSR :)
I'm writing a short article about new experimental banknotes in circulation, in Russia.
The state is testing new types of protective coatings.
I'll translate it into English and send it to you.

Hi Kirill,
That's cool! Is it OK if I post it on my site? With your name on it of course.
