The Central Bank plans to organize an experiment to collect coins from the population in order to return the money into circulation. For this, new specialized devices will be installed in one of the regions; later, the use of the devices is planned to be expanded.
The regulator plans to stimulate the use of equipment for accepting coins. The pilot launch of the project will take place in 2022 in a region with a low rate of return of coins from circulation, writes Rossiyskaya Gazeta.
– The problem of returning coins to circulation during a pandemic decreased by 46%, – explains the Central Bank. – Now the machines for collecting coins are present on the market, but their distribution is hindered by the low profitability of its use due to the high commission. It is planned that the new equipment will accept change without commission or with a minimum percentage.
In which of the regions the experiment will be launched has not yet been reported.
