The 5000 ruble banknote was first printed by the Russian Federation in 1992, following the disestablishment of the Soviet Union. New issues were then introduced from 1993 to 1995, and then 1997. Today, it is found in circulation within Russia.

The first 5000 ruble note of the Russian Federation was released July 14, 1992. It was predominantly blue in color, and measured 70 millimeters in height by 145 millimeters in width. Displayed on the obverse was a scene of Moscow. Shown on the reverse was the Moscow Kremlin with the Bolshoy Moskvoretsky Bridge and a residential building in the background. For security, a watermark consisting of five-pointed stars was implemented. These notes were officially withdrawn on July 26, 1993.

On March 12, 1993, Russia introduced its second issue of 5000 ruble notes. It was mainly purple and red in color, and measured 67 millimeters in height by 152 millimeters in width. On the obverse was the Senate Tower of the Moscow Kremlin, with the flag of Russia above. Depicted on the reverse was the same image from the first series, showing the Moscow Kremlin, the Bolshoy Moskvorestky Bridge, and a residential building. The watermark on this note was the Senate Tower of the Moscow Kremlin with the Russian flag.

On September 19, 1994, a third issue was introduced. It was very similar to the second issue, but on the new note the watermark was slightly altered, also displaying "5000"s with the Senate Tower and Russian flag. Both issues were withdrawn on January 1, 1999.

Depicted on the obverse was the Millennium of Russia monument, with the Saint Sophia Cathedral in Novgorod in the background. Shown on the reverse was the fortress wall of the Novgorod Kremlin. The watermark on this note displayed the Saint Sophia Cathedral in Novgorod and the number "5000". These banknotes were withdrawn on January 1, 1999.

In 1997, Russia printed its current 5000 ruble note, but it wasn't issued until July 31, 2006. The note is predominantly orange in color, and measures 69 millimeters in height by 157 millimeters in width. Depicted on the obverse is the Monument of Nikolay Muravyov-Amursky in Khabarovsk. On the reverse is the Khabarovsk Bridge above the Amur River.

This note introduced a number of security features. It bears a watermark of the upper part of the Monument of Nikolay Muravyov-Amursky and "5000"s. Also, a moiré pattern, a latent image, infrared tags, embossed and magnetic labels, a security thread, microprinting, microperforation, protective fibers, and Tsvetoperemennaya[translate] paint were added to make the note more secure.
