  1. The 5 ruble note is very rare now. It is now out of print, although it is still legal tender.
  2. The 10 ruble note is no longer printed starting January 2010. Replaced by the 10 ruble coin. But 10 ruble notes are still in use though less common.
  3. Banknotes of the 2001 revision bear the fine print "модификация 2001г." meaning "modification of year 2001" on the left watermark area.
  4. Banknotes of the 2004 revision also bear the similar fine print. More importantly, new security features have been added, including (but not limited to):
  • Moiré pattern: The area appears to be one color from one angle, stripes from another angle.
  • Wider metallic thread
  • Microperforation (100 rubles and above): Denomination numeral formed by dots (small laser perforated holes in the paper)
  • Color shifting ink (500 rubles and above): The emblem of the Bank of Russia for 500 rubles, and the city emblem of Yaroslavl for 1000 rubles.

All Russian paper money is currently printed at the state-owned factory Goznak in Moscow, which was organized on 6 June 1919 and has continued to operate ever since. Coins are minted in Moscow and at the Saint Petersburg Mint, which has been operating since 1724.

Famous quotes containing the word seventh:

    Expecting me to grovel,
    she carefully covers both feet
    with the hem of her skirt.
    She pretends to hide
    a coming smile
    and won’t look straight at me.
    When I talk to her,
    she chats with her friend
    in cross tones.
    Even this slim girl’s rising anger
    delights me,
    let alone her deep love.
    Amaru (c. seventh century A.D.)
