Notes in the News promotion: Russia and Ukraine

One of the things I love about banknotes is that they provide insight into history, culture, and geography, all of which are useful in placing current events into context. With that in mind, I'm pleased to announce the first "Notes in the News promotion."

Anyone buying the Russia chapter of The Banknote Book in the next 30 days will be entitled to a free copy of the Ukraine chapter (a $9.99 value).

Selections for promotions should not be considered an endorsement of the politics of either country.

Ukraine not planning 1,000-hryvnia note

According to a Ukrainian Journal article dated 1 December 2011, the National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) has no plans to issue a 1,000-hryvnia (US$125) banknote, says Viktor Zaivenko, deputy director general of the Money Circulation Department.

"The NBU has no such plans. And did not have [such plans]… The NBU is not working on issuing of 1,000 hryvnia banknotes and has not even designed them… The NBU thinks that the nominal range of banknotes as of today is sufficient for the economy," Zaivenko told reporters.
