When you buy Russian rubles, the exchange rate you get is the amount of Russian rubles you'll receive for every pound that you spend, so for example a rate of 173.677 means you'd get ₽173.677 for each £1 that you spend. You can calculate the total amount of Russian rubles you'd receive for a given amount of sterling by simply multiplying the sterling amount by the exchange rate.
When it comes to selling Russian rubles, the buyback rate is expressed in terms of how many Russian rubles you'd need to sell in order to get £1, so a buyback rate of 173.677 means you'd need to sell ₽173.677 to get £1. To calculate the sterling value of a given amount of Russian rubles, you need to divide the Russian ruble amount by the buyback rate. Since you're dividing by the buyback rate, a lower buyback rate means you'd get more sterling compared to a higher buyback rate.
One Russian ruble (₽) can be subdivded into 100 kopecks (k). There are seven denominations of Russian ruble banknotes in circulation: ₽10, ₽50, ₽100, ₽200, ₽500, ₽1000 and ₽2000; and four frequently-used coins: ₽1, ₽2, ₽5 and ₽10. Smaller denomination coins ranging from 1-50 kopecks also exist but are not widely used due to their low value.
The current series of Russian Ruble banknotes is known as the 'Bank of Russia' series which was introduced gradually from 1997 to 2006 by the Russian Central Bank. The designs on these banknotes feature a mix of Russian historical figures, landmarks, and cultural symbols. For instance, The ₽10 note depicts a scene from the Russian epic poem "The Tale of Igor's Campaign"; The ₽50 note features the image of Peter I (Peter the Great), and the ₽100 note displays a portrait of Dmitry Mendeleev, the renowned Russian chemist, alongside a chemical formula.
