Russia’s Central Bank has unveiled new 100-ruble ($1.63) bills to commemorate the upcoming FIFA World Cup، The Eagle Online reported.

The front side of the banknote depicts a boy admiring the legendary Soviet goalkeeper Lev Yashin diving for the ball.

A soccer ball with an embossed map of Russia adorns the back side of the blue-and-green Technicolor bill.

A slew of soccer-themed security features double as Easter eggs، including holographic images that change colors when brought under a UV light or seen under different angles; micro images of fans; and a micro text of the World Cup host cities.

The features are all listed in the QR code on the bottom right corner of the polymer banknote.

A total of 20 million commemorative bills will enter circulation before the start of the tournament next month، Russia’s Central Bank has said.
