The Transnistrian ruble (symbol: p.) is the official currency of Transnistria. It is divided into 100 kopeks, similar to the neighboring Russian ruble. Due to Transnistria being a state with limited recognition, its currency has no ISO 4217 code. However, some Transnistrian organizations such as Agroprombank and Gazprombank use PRB as the ISO 4217 code. The Transnistrian Republican Bank, which issues the currency, sometimes uses the code RUP.


Приднестровье 10 тысяч рублей 1994 с маркой аверс

A stamped 10,000 ruble note.

The first banknotes of the Transnistrian ruble used after the establishment of the unrecognized state were Russian and Soviet banknotes dated 1961 to 1992 with an adhesive stamp on them. These were issued in denominations of 10, 25, 50, 100, 200, 500, 1000, 5000, and 10,000 rubles. Many of these stamps depicted Alexander Suvorov.

The first issues were eventually replaced by a new ruble, which was equal to 1000 of the old rubles. It consisted solely of banknotes, and eventually suffered from a high inflation, making it necessary to issue notes in higher denominations. These notes were denominated at 1, 5, 10, 50, 100, 200, 500, 1000, 5000, 10,000, 50,000, 100,000, and 500,000 rubles.

During 2000, the third Transnistrian ruble was introduced, which was equal to 1 million of the old rubles. In the same year, coins and commemorative coins were produced. The printed denominations of this ruble are 1, 5, 10, 25, 50, 100, 200, and 500 rubles, and remain in circulation.


The first notes were issued in 1993. In 1994, a new issue was made, and then in 2000 a new series was created. In 2007, the current series replaced the 2000 series, which are still in circulation.

First Transnistrian coin

The first coin.

The first coins of the Transnistrian ruble were introduced in 2000 in denominations of 1, 5, 10, 25, and 50 kopeks. The first coin produced, however, was equal to 25 rubles. The 25 kopek coin was modified in 2002, with the 50 kopek coin following in 2005. In 2009, the 1 kopek coin was withdrawn from circulation. After 2000, numerous commemorative coins have been issued by the Transnistrian Republican Bank.
