The ruble fell on tough times recently with thanks to the 2014-2016 Russian financial crisis and the economic sanctions placed on the country due to recent territorial disputes.
However more recently, the ruble has proven a robust investment choice for emerging markets, due to the country’s high interest rates and struggling economies proving a worth competitor.
Banknotes are available in 5, 10, 50, 100, 500, 1,000 and 5,000 ₽, with coins available in 10 and 50 kon. 1, 2, 5 and 10 ₽.
