Russia to issue a commemorative Olympic note

The Russian Central Bank has announced it will issue a commemorative banknote of 100 ruble to celebrate the coming Winter Olympics in Sochi in 2014. No details have been released about the design of the note only that the note will differ in color from the regular red 100 ruble note. 

The last time a country issued a commemorative Olympic note was China for the Olympics of 2008. These notes can still be bought for very high prices on eBay.
