The postal products and a commemorative silver coin dedicated to the 250th anniversary of the founding member of the Russian Geographical Society, the navigator Ivan Kruzenshtern, were put into circulation.
The joint-stock company "Marka" has issued an envelope, postcard, stamp, postmark and a souvenir set with a portrait of Ivan Kruzenshtern. In addition to the seafarer's portrait, the products include images of the sloop "Nadezhda"(eng. “Hope”), the Andreevsky flag, maps with the marked route of the round-the-world expedition.
In turn, the Bank of Russia issued a silver coin dedicated to the seafarer in the "Outstanding Personalities of Russia" series. The denomination of the coin is 2 rubles. There is a relief portrait of Ivan Kruzenshtern on it against the background of a contour image of the world circumnavigation map of 1803-1806 made in the technique of laser matting. At the top, along the circumference, there is an inscription: "I.F. Kruzenshtern"; on the right there are the years of the navigator's life.
