Belarus 2009 - First circulating set

First circulating coins in Belarus

It seems that by the end of 2009 we'll see a monetary reform (1:1000) in Belarus. We'll see these new coins circulating in a country that never used their own coins before (just commemoratives).
They seem to have been minted at Kremnica, Slovakia.

    This is a fake, because due to hard economic situation, belarussian national bank cannot perform a denomination in the near future

  2. Well, don't you remember that Belarus has 2 official languages? Belarusian and Russan? So why I see only words in Russian?

  3. "Now we also witness "milk" war with Russia and even stronger pressure to trade using Russian roubles. This seems to be the first step to unification..."

    How come that a war can lead to unification? In my opinion it only drives the countries away from each other, since even a milk war is quite a bitter thing. I believe that there will be no unification of monetary systems of Russia and Belarus, at least not in the nearest couple of years.

  7. 1 ryb cannot cost less than 50 and 10 kopeek. Images can also true, but the prices in comments are specified not truly. In Belarus now it is a lot of gossips goes, it can was born because of a panic, but there can be it someone's malicious joke.
