“30th Anniversary of First Bank PMR” Commemorative Issue
The currency in question is a distinctive 1 Ruble banknote, P-68 and BNP218. Cloaked in a rich hue of brown, this note boasts dimensions of 129 x 56 mm.
The obverse side of the banknote features a commanding portrait of General Alexander Vassilyevich Suvorov, a figure of historical significance. This image is accompanied by a commemorative 75th-anniversary logo overprint, a tribute to General Suvorov’s enduring legacy. This overprint is superimposed on the base note P42b (B-209b), adding a layer of historical context to the design.
Turning the banknote reveals a poignant depiction. The Kitskansk/Chiţcani Bridgehead memorial, commemorating the pivotal Soviet Jassy-Kishinev Offensive of 1944, takes center stage. This scene serves as a testament to the valor and sacrifice of those who shaped history.
To fortify security, a winged security thread is incorporated into the design, a strategic feature designed to deter counterfeiting. The esteemed Transdniester printing institution was entrusted with the creation of this banknote, aligning with their reputation for precision and craftsmanship.
A watermark, featuring an image of Alexander Suvorov alongside an electrotype marking of ПРБ (the Russian abbreviation for “PRB”), contributes an additional layer of authenticity and security. The date of origin is marked as 2007, with a modification in 2012. The banknote was officially introduced into circulation on May 6th, 2020, marking an important point in its journey.
A limited quantity of 2500 notes were thoughtfully packaged within booklets, each encapsulating a piece of history and remembrance. This banknote stands as a tribute to the legacy of General Suvorov and the historical events it represents.
