Securities with the image of “labor man” by Ivan Shadr
February 7, 1923 was issued a decree of the Council of People's Commissars of the RSFSR, which initiated the issuance of short-term liabilities of the Central Bank of the Narkomfin "for the use of cash resources of public and private sectors of the economy”. In their production Goznak used a photo of the sculpture of I.D. Shadr "Worker". The image of the sculpture was stamped by a metallographic stamp. This was the first experience after the revolution of using a portrait made in this way on securities. A similar image can be seen on a 5-ruble banknote from 1925, which is on display at the Money History Museum.
Alexander III and his coins
In the exposition of the Museum of JSC "Goznak" you can see copper, silver coins of Alexander III, from the date of his birth March 10, 2020 was 175 years old.
Alexander III ruled Russia relatively briefly - only a little over 13 years (1881 - 1894). Estimates of his reign are contradictory, and usually depend on current public sentiment. At this time it is the conclusion of the Franco-Russian Union, the beginning of industrial and trade boom, reference to the Old Russian culture, strengthening of Russia's position in the international arena. Under Alexander III Russia did not wage wars, for which the official sources called the Emperor a Peacemaker.
