The 2018 World Cup is right around the corner, and the curtain will be raised today! The Bank of Russia has issued a commemorative polymer banknote to celebrate the country’s hosting of this top sports event.

According to Tass, the Russian News Agency, some 20 million special-edition banknotes will be issued, reaching all regions of the country by the end of June. By tradition, the face value of the banknote will be 100 rubles.

The banknotes have been produced using polymer substrates produced in Russia, with specialists from the country’s royal mint having developed a number of security features that allow maximum use of the visual and tactile characteristics of the material.

The life of plastic banknotes is about 2.5 times higher than that of paper money of low denomination.

The Bank of Russia will use this technology to produce ordinary banknotes, proceeding from their nominal value and planned circulation, first deputy Chief of the regulator Olga Skorobogatova said.

The artistic composition on the front side of the banknote symbolizes the continuity of generations. It depicts a boy who dreams of repeating the achievements of great players.

The reverse side of the banknote carries a flying soccer ball, symbolizing the globe with the map of Russia highlighted on it. Below the cities which host the matches of the 2018 World Cup are written. The images on both sides are vertically-oriented.
