Russia Adopts Symbol for Ruble
« on: December 14, 2013, 08:23:37 AM »
The original article in Russian is here. The Central Bank of Russia intends to plan issue coins and banknotes with the new Ruble symbol (lowercase barred 'p') in future.

If this goes on, eventually we will have to have a "currency symbol alphabet" as a sticky topic in the Numismatics board.

I just read an article where it is mentioned that new coins and banknotes with new Ruble symbol will be issued in 2014, so we have yet another new circulation set next year. :)

Looks fine in my opinion. Too bad that, when it comes to two parallel lines in currency symbols, I do not have the copyright. Would be a multi-millionaire by now. ;D

Agreed. ;D However, I'd have preferred an uppercase 'P' instead of lowercase 'P'...

Don't think that, in the case of the Cyrillic P, there is much of a difference between the printed lowercase and uppercase characters. :) I just had a look at the central bank's website, and they now have some info in English too: http://www.cbr.ru/eng/today/?Prtid=voterub  They refer to a sign "in the form of a capital letter 'P' - the Cyrillic alphabet version of the letter 'R' - with an extra horizontal line". (Emphasis by me.) Hmm.

Not as attractive as the Indian Rupee symbol but I guess it will do  ;)

LOL

Well, they have to object since it clearly shows that religious institutions = money :D

BTW they're wrong about "ancient" and "modern" chi-ro. This what they call modern appeared from its beginnings, Roman emperor Constantine the Great used it on his coins.

You can even buy the ruble symbol as a 3 ruble (1 oz) silver coin. :)

Is this a circulating commemorative or new definitive coin?
Since the mintage is large, it is available aplenty, unlike other commem coins.
I am told that perhaps 2, 5 and 10 Euro coins will follow this design.
Perhaps a marketing exercise for globalising the currency symbol, like India attempted since 2011 onwards.
Will it be minted next year?

Currently it is considered to be a circulating commem. Mintage 100 million, so yes, there are quite a few. As for future "regular" designs, I don't know but have always found it a little strange that the word РУБЛЬ, spelled out, appears two times on these coins. So maybe a new design will have the denomination as two words on one side, and as a combination of the ruble symbol and a digit, on the other side. Just wild guessing here though ...

(And no, the euro coins will not follow that design. ;) )

Currently, RUB 1 = EUR 0.02 = GBP 0.016 = INR 1.5 = USD 0.025. Haven't seen one circulating in Moscow, but had no time to search either.
