Russian Federation ruble or rouble
The ruble or rouble (code: RUB) is the currency of the Russian Federation and the two partially recognized republics of Abkhazia and South Ossetia. It is Fiat money. Formerly, the ruble was also the currency of the Soviet Union and the Russian Empire prior to their breakups. The ruble is subdivided into 100 kopeks (sometimes transliterated kopecks, or copecks). The ISO 4217 code is RUB; the former code, RUR, refers to the Russian ruble prior to the 1998 denomination (1 RUB = 1000 RUR).
According to the most popular version, the word “ruble” is derived from the Russian verb rubit, meaning to chop. Historically, a “ruble” was a piece of a certain weight chopped off a silver ingot (grivna), hence the name.
Names of different denominations of kopek
In the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, several coins had individual names:
1 kopek – polushka
1 kopek – denga or dénezhka
2 kopek – semishnik (mostly obsolete by 20th century), dvúshka (20th century) or grosh
3 kopek – altyn (mostly obsolete by the 1960s)
5 kopek – pyaták
10 kopek – grívennik
15 kopek – pyatialtýnny (5 altyn; the usage lived longer than altyn)
20 kopek – dvugrívenny (2 grivenniks)
25 kopek – polupoltínnik (half poltínnik) or chetverták (from the Russian for 1)
50 kopek – poltína or poltínnik
The amount of 10 rubles (in either bill or coin) is sometimes informally referred to as a chervonets. Historically, it was the name for the first Russian 3-ruble gold coin issued for general circulation in 1701. The current meaning comes from Soviet golden chervonets issued in 1923 that was equivalent to the pre-revolution 10 gold rubles. All these names are obsolete. The practice of using the old kopek coin names for amounts in rubles is now not very common.
In modern Russian slang only these names are used:
5 rubles – Pyatyórka
10 rubles – Chírik or Desyátka
50 rubles – Poltínnik with some variants like Poltishók
100 rubles – Stólnik
500 rubles – Pyatikhátka, originally pyatikátka
1000 rubles – Shtúka or Kosár and a hybrid Shtukár
500,000 rubles – Pol-limóna (a half of limon)
1,000,000 rubles – Limón
The fifth term derived from (five Catherines). Katya ( Catherina) having been a slang name for the 100 ruble note in tsarist Russia, as the note had a picture of Catherine II on it.
