On 4 November 2015 the National Bank of the Republic of Belarus announced that the existing notes will be replaced by the new ones due to the redenomination at a rate of 10,000:1.

On 1 July 2016 were introduced seven denominations of banknotes: 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 500 rubles and eight denominations of coins: 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50 copeek, 1 and 2 rubles.

Belarus started using coins for the first time in its history.

The banknotes show 2009 as an issue date (the date of printing).

The new ISO 4217 code is BYN (previous – BYR).

From 1 July 2016 to 31 December 2016, the banknotes of the 2000 series and the banknotes and coins of the 2009 series circulate in parallel.

From 1 January 2017 to 31 December 2021 the currency units of the 2000 series will be exchanged for the currency units of the 2009 series without restriction.
