  1. Once again, actual printer is Goznak!

    So far, only prefix A has been confirmed – no replacements yet but these should have an X prefix as any Goznak-printed note.

    Also, availability is *extremely* limited for anything over 10-bolivar, but I guess it’s just matter of time until our economy implodes again and we get flooded with more of these higher-denomination notes.
