Head of Goznak Arkady Trachuk said that it was time to change the appearance of the Russian banknotes.

Mr. Trachuk emphasized the fact that the concept of the Russian banknotes has not changed for 20 years already, and during this time views on the banknote design and security have changed a lot.

Arkady Trachuk, Head of Goznak, “I believe in some cases the time to change the appearance has come. The concept of the appearance has remained unchanged since 1995 – for over 20 years already. During this time, views on both the design and security have changed quite a lot”.  

The Head of Goznak held up the 5000-rouble banknote put into circulation in 2011 as an example. According to Mr. Trachuk, the matter of its modification may rise in 2018.  

General Director of Goznak also emphasized that the existing colour scheme of the banknotes is not so broad, and various colours will be applied to keep the whole palette, according to RIA “Novosti”.  

By the way, earlier today the Central Bank and Goznak have presented banknotes with the face values of 200 and 2000 roubles with Sevastopol and Vladivostok depicted on them. The new banknotes will be put into circulation in October.
