OLYMPIC, SOCCER & SPORTS COINS


NEWDID 2018 RUSSIAN WORLD CUP SOCCER BANKNOTE PREDICTED THE FUTURE?

Russia 100 Rubles World Cup Soccer (FIFA) banknote, 2018On May 22, 2018 Russia released an impressive polymer 100 Ruble to commemorate their hosting of the World Cup Soccer (FIFA) games.  The vertical note includes numerous advanced features, including color changing ink, holograms, tactile features, multiple windows of various colors, micro-images, and images that are only visible under UV light.  The front features iconic Russian goalkeeper Lev Yashin diving to make a save.  Watching him is a young boy holding a metallic green soccer ball. To the fight of the boy is a QR code which links to the Bank of Russia web page that describes some of the many security features of the note.  Perhaps most intriguing is the silver hologram in the upper left which features a diving player just barely getting his left foot on a ball which is exactly how Russia's Igor Akinfeev would save Spain's Iago Aspas’s shootout penalty kick on July 1.  The save gave 70th ranked Russia an astounding victory over soccer powerhouse Spain in one of the biggest upsets in World Cup history.  The back of the note includes a soccer ball that features the globe featuring a map of Russia and the name of the eleven host cities.  It is an impressive and colorful note.
