A brief annotation
The Forwarding Agency of the State Paperstock was founded in 1818 by order of Emperor Alexander I. From that moment the Forwarding Agency became the only enterprise in the Russian Empire that produced paper banknotes, bonds, stamp paper and other secured products. In the Forwarding Agency all stages of money production were combined into a single production complex - from the preparation of paper to the development of design and printing. The initiator of the creation of the Forwarding Agency was an outstanding engineer and architect A. A. Betancourt, who developed the concept of the enterprise and supervised the construction of the Forwarding Agency buildings.

From the moment of creation of the Forwarding Agency of the State Paperstock (since 1919 – Goznak) its history was inseparably connected with history of Russia. For two centuries, Goznak has been carrying out the most important state tasks, using the most advanced technologies.

Many events in the life of the country can be illustrated by the products, that were first released by the Forwarding Agency of the State Paperstock and then by Goznak: the first postage stamp and the first banknote containing gold; the first Soviet passport; military awards of the great Patriotic war and medals of the Moscow Olympics, space pennants and certificates conferring honorary titles.
