Russia new 200- and 2,000-ruble notes reported for introduction in late 2017

According to a press release dated 12 April 2016, the Bank of Russia plans to introduce new 200- and 2,000-ruble notes by the end of 2017. These entirely new denominations are expected to enhance the convenience of cash payments, and will save time when paying for goods and services.

The current Russian banknotes depict the characters of Russian cities and regions, and this tradition will continue with the new notes, but for the first time the Russian public will get to vote on the new designs in the summer of 2016.
