The specialists of Goznak have developed and printed new banknotes with the face values of 200 and 2000 roubles under the order of the Bank of Russia.

Elvira Nabiullina, Chairman of the Bank of Russia, and Arkady Trachuk, General Director of Goznak, presented the new banknotes on October 12, 2017.  
It can be said without exaggeration that the set of banknotes of the Russian roubles is supplemented with banknotes of the new generation. It is expressed in both the design and the new unique technologies applied in the production.
As Elvira Nabiullina, Chairman of the Bank of Russia mentioned in her speech during the presentation, the choice of the banknotes theme was truly countrywide for the first time in the history of our country. One of the peculiarities of these banknotes is in the fact that all the citizens of Russia could participate in the choice of the cities to be depicted on the banknotes for the first time in the history. At the last stage of the competition, over 3 million people determined the winners – symbols of the Far East and Sevastopol – by voting across the whole country.
As soon as the voting results had been summarized, the specialists of the Bank of Russia and Goznak started working upon the design and security features of the new banknotes.  
A group of artists of the Bank of Russia and Goznak under the supervision of Sergey Kozlov, Consultant of the Division of Currency Units and Counterfeiting Prevention of the Bank of Russia, created the design of the banknotes. Arkady Trachuk, General Director of Goznak, said that the stylistics of this design would be reflected during modernization of the old and creation of the new Russian banknotes.
Arkady Trachuk emphasized that the specialists of the Bank of Russia and Goznak aimed at creating not only beautiful and visually modern, but also high-tech banknotes. As a result, a truly innovative product has been put into circulation.
It is enough to say that Goznak’s own technologies secured with 15 various patents as well as the most cutting-edge achievements of the world banknote industry were applied in the banknotes development.  
The first principal advantage achieved thanks to these technologies is durability. The 200-rouble banknote is printed on a special kind of paper with the application of technologies increasing its circulation life. It is more resistant to soiling and mechanical damage. As per calculations, it should increase the banknote durability one and a half times to compare to other face values.  
The visual security field also faced changes – there are security features facilitating its authentication in circulation, without special technical devices considerably.  
Security threads should be mentioned separately. Three security features are combined in the threads; they appear when the banknote is tilted, viewed at a certain angle and in transmitted light. The features are very easy to check by the population but very difficult to counterfeit. It is a unique development of Goznak, there are no analogues of such threads in the world today. This time, special attention was paid to the banknotes convenience for visually impaired people. The specialists of Goznak have studied, tested and selected the best modern methods of marking banknotes for visually impaired people from the world practice.
Those include tactile security features, groups of marks along the banknote edges, as well as, for the first time, large contrasting images of the face value with tactile properties. They have all been developed taking into account recommendations of the leading international organizations in the field of protecting the rights of people with reduced capabilities as well as the experience of other leading banknote manufacturers.
There is a certain system of values for tactile security features developed specially for visually impaired people. One can learn how the system works and how to read the information from the tactile security features correctly, at a special page of the Bank of Russia dedicated to banknotes. The link to this page is also placed on the banknote surface in the shape of a QR-code.  
The set of machine-readable features has also been reprocessed on the new banknotes. Thanks to such changes, the reliability of the banknote processing in ATMs and other banking machines will be increased.
The result of development of security technologies applied in the new banknotes will be useful for renewing other face values of the Russian rouble banknotes in the future.
