2018 FIFA World Cup banknotes put into circulation in Russia

24 May 2018

Russia issues a limited series of 100-rubles banknotes in celebration of the upcoming 2018 FIFA World Cup.

The tournament will be held in 11 Russian cities across the country from 14 June to 15 July. These banknotes are a collector's must-have, and a great remembrance token.

The design symbolizes the aspirations of the country’s younger generations, and the examples set by Russia’s greatest football players like Soviet goalkeeping legend Lev Yashin.

On the reverse side of the note is a flying football, which represents the globe and the international nature of the World Cup.

20 Million special notes have been printed.
