Russia announces possible themes for new banknotes

The Bank of Russia has announced the shortlist of 10 selected designs eligble to be on the new 200- and 2,000-ruble notes. For these two notes the Russian public was asked for the first time to nominate cities and regions to be portrayed on the new banknotes.

The two winning themes will be announced on 7 October 2016. The new notes are expected to be issued at the end of 2017.

My personal favorites which I think would make the most interesting banknotes are the Far East (yay, space notes!) and Irkutsk themes.
