front side
back side

The modified banknote has the same dimensions and general design as the 10-ruble banknote of 1997. The banknote colour design has been changed insignificantly. On the front of the modified banknote in the lower part of the unprinted area to the left of the main image there is a text “МОДИФИКАЦИЯ 2004 Г” (2004 modification).

The modified banknotes have the following main differences:

  • the protective fibres of three types are embedded in the paper (red, light-green and two-coloured);
  • the metallic window thread is embedded in the paper. It comes out on the surface on the back of the banknote;
  • on the front of the banknote there is a field with latent coloured waves (MVC effect) — moiré variable colour (MVC);
  • on the front the numeric value of denomination is printed in grey non-metallic ink;
  • images of the banknote under an ultra-violet and infra-red light have differences from the banknote of 1997.

On the front of the note there are two serial numbers that consist of two letters indicating the series followed by seven digits.

Security features

Security features checked in the transmitted light
Multitone watermark
The paper has local watermarks on the left and right coupon fields. In the wide coupon field there is a chapel in the city of Krasnoyarsk and in the narrow coupon field there is a numeric value of the denomination (value numeral 10). When the banknote is held up to the light you can see various parts of the watermarks, some of which are lighter while others are darker than the surrounding paper.
See-through (printing in) register
The note is printed with great accuracy so that irregular elements of the design on both sides of the banknote join up to form a complete picture when the banknote is viewed against the light.
