A Study of the Fiscal Stamps - General Suvorov

1992/1993

Perforated Frame 12:11½

 

Background Information

Having declared independence from the Republic of Moldova, and following the break-up of the USSR in 1992, Pridnestrovie established its own currency, the PMR Ruble, but did not print its own banknotes. Instead, the existing USSR Ruble banknotes, already in circulation, continued to be used as legal tender locally.  Thus, Pridnestrovie became the only territory in the former Soviet block to continue to accept the old USSR Ruble as legitimate currency. This resulted in a huge influx of USSR Rubles into the tiny economy, from people all over the former Soviet Union, in an attempt to rescue their savings and investments.

In an effort to protect the local economy from hyper-inflation and inevitable collapse, the "General Suvorov" fiscal stamps were attached to the banknotes to differentiate PMR Rubles from old USSR Rubles. The face value of the fiscal stamp represents the value of the banknote. So, a 5 Ruble banknote with a 5,000 stamp attached was actually worth 5,000 PMR Rubles.

Large numbers of these fiscal stamps were produced and, from 2002 onwards, have been surcharged for use as postage stamps. Click here for details.
