November, 1993 was stored to citizens of Armenia, as one of the most complicated seasons when after an exit of Russia from rouble allowed band, the government of Armenia which one was in distress, has made a decision about initiating on native currency territory of the country - a dram .

On November, 22nd, 1993 at 00 o'clock in terrain of Armenia boating of russian rubles of the State Bank of the USSR instead of which one dram notes have been entered into reversal was stopped. Interchanging of rubles for drams has been realised within one week.
