5 ruble Russian banknote

The Russian Five Ruble was introduced in 1998 and was discontinued because of inflation. These Five Ruble notes are rare to find in general circulation. The most prominent color is light-green in the background.



The design is dedicated to the city of Novgorod the Great. On the Obverse is the Millennium of Russia with the Saint Sophia Cathedral in Novgorod in the background. On the reverse is fortress wall of the Novgorod Kremlin. The Volkhov River is also seen in the background above the wall.

Security features

The Five Ruble note has a number of security features. Two watermarks are on the note, the one on the left is the denomination of the bill. On the right is the Saint Sophia Cathedral in Novgorod, both are viewable when held up to the light. A security thread runs through the banknote, when held up to the light "ЦБР 5" can be seen. The vertical banner to the left of the Millennium of Russia, is printed on both sides of the note, when held up to the light the band should be complete. Throughout the banknote blue, red, and yellow threads are randomly distributed. On the bottom banner when viewed at an angle the letters PP appear. Next to the denomination in the lower left hand corner are two raised dots known as intaglio printing for the visual impaired. Under UV Light the colored threads glow.
