Polish rubel

The rubel was the currency of the Congress Poland from 1841 until 1917. It consisted of Russian ruble coins and banknotes, together with notes issued by the Bank of Poland. The rubel replaced the złoty at a rate of 1 rubel = 6+23 złotych (1 złoty = 15 kopecks). It was replaced by the Polish marka in 1917.


The Bank of Poland issued notes in denominations of 1, 3, 10 and 25 rubli between 1841 and 1866.
