"Sochi 2014" Coin Program

The tradition of minting coins especially for the Olympics is almost 26 hundred years old. The first ancient Olympic coin dates back to 510-500 years B.C.; the first modern Olympic coin was minted for the Olympic Games of 1952 in Helsinki.

The "Sochi 2014" coin program is a worthy continuation of the centuries-old tradition. In Russia, it will be implemented by the Central Bank of the Russian Federation, Sberbank and the "Sochi 2014" Organization Committee.

The series consists of: 4 silver coins (worth 3 rubles each) dedicated to winter sports ("Biathlon", "Downhill skis" "Figure skating", "Hockey"); a gold coin "Sochi’s flora" (worth 1000 rubles); a silver coin "Russian Winter" (worth 100 rubles); two gold coins "Bobsleigh" and "Curling" (worth 50 rubles each) and a non-ferrous metal coin with the "Games in Sochi" logo depicted against a mountain scene background.

Olympic Games are not the only subject of the silver coins’ design. "Sochi 2014" coins also reflect the unique nature of the region where the Games will take place – i.e. Sochi. The coin was minted using a groundbreaking technology that allowed applying a colored image onto the surface of the coin and gilding certain parts of its surface.

The "Sochi 2014" coins are available at Sberbank offices all over Russia.

    The word curling first appeared at the beginning of the 17th century; in the 18th century the form and the size of the stone began getting standardized, and, finally, in the first half of the 19th century the game got its official rules, which are almost the same today.

Stanislav Kuznetsov, Deputy Chairman of the Management Board (Sberbank)

"For the country organizing the Olympic Games, coins are the brand identity; they reflect the ideas of the Olympics, encourage patriotism. Coins reflect the cultural and historical heritage of the country, passed down from generation to generation and kept for many years after the Games. Sberbank of Russia will try its best to promote the Olympic coins program in Russia. Sales organized in the Bank with greatest national coverage will respond to the people’s demand for Olympic coins all over Russia".

Become a part of the main sporting event of the summer by opening a special deposit on the best terms.

Reach new financial heights!

In the summer of 2012, the spirit of sport is in the air. In July and August we’ll be rooting for the Russian athletes competing in the London Olympics. Prior to the XXII Winter Olympics in Sochi, we all have two years to set our personal records – financial records!

To do so, open a special “New heights!” fixed period deposit from 03 July to 31 August 2012. While the athletes will be making the nation proud with their achievements in sports, your savings will be growing at a rate that will impress you just as much.

The “New Heights!” deposit offer was created for fans with any income – the minimum deposit amount is only 10 thousand rubles. The “New Heights!” deposit profit rate is the highest among all base Sberbank deposits. The deposit can be made for 1 or 2 years (practice shows that these timeframes are the most popular among Sberbank’s clients). All it takes is to open the deposit within two summer months – July and August.

Moreover, if at any point you will have the sudden need to withdraw your money before the deadline stated in the agreement – you will receive most of the accumulated profit from the deposit. At the end of the deposit period, you can simultaneously withdraw both the deposited sum and the profit.

Don’t forget that summer is also vacation season: many people spend it out-of-home – and leaving all your savings at home (or taking them with you) is, to say the least, unreasonable. It makes a lot more sense to have your money work while you’re resting. A highly profitable fixed term deposit is the best solution in such cases – it only takes a few minutes to open, but will save you many months’ worries. Summer is also the peak vacation season. Many prefer to spend it outside their home city. Leaving all your savings at home or taking them all with you is usually not the best option. A safer and more beneficial solution is to have your money work for you while you relax.

XXX Summer Olympics in London will start very soon – on 27 July – and will be taking place until 12 August. It is no coincidence that the Olympic Games have become an inspiration for the creation of a thematic bank deposit offer: Sberbank, being the main partner of the upcoming Sochi Olympics, is already putting the Russian people in a sporting mood by creating special offers.
