Looking for a response in the Central Bank

Targeted to replace paper banknotes with denomination of 10 rubles the coin is already not the first year.

As established in the Central Bank, the average life of a ten-dollar bill is a little less than a year, and coins for about 30 years.

The Central Bank has expressed frustration with the perception of the population of 10-ruble coins. For this reason it will not go ahead with the launch of coins of the larger denominations, although this step was previously scheduled.

It was promised that by the beginning of 2012 paper money in denomination of 10 roubles will be completely withdrawn from circulation. A similar situation happened with the banknote of 5 rubles, which successfully brought out of circulation. But something went wrong. The Central Bank's plans went awry. Was not so easy to immediately take and withdraw all paper gold coins from circulation.

Where can escape of the coins?

By the way, the weight of a ten-coin - 5.63 grams.
Because of this, many simply leave their houses in the Bank. This phenomenon acquired a mass character. Babbitt metal does not perceive money as paper notes.

People tend to divided into supporters and opponents of various reforms. In this case it was unanimous. People began to feel uncomfortable. In stores there is an acute shortage of money of this denomination. Payment terminals in Russia is not designed for trivia lovers to recharge your phone on a small amount unhappy, too.

In 2011 in Krasnoyarsk, which is depicted on a ten-bill, was inaugurated a monument to the ten paper. On the pavement lies a crumpled bill. Residents are proud of the fact that it depicts the Krasnoyarsk hydroelectric power station. Soon now this bill will disappear from circulation forever and become history.
