The sixth type of the Order of the Red Banner of Labor appeared around 1966 and existed until the collapse of the USSR. The main difference from the previous types of the order was a ring-shaped groove with a diameter of approximately 20 mm on the reverse of the sign. Inside this groove are two rivets that fasten the sickle and hammer, and a stamp made in this type with bulging letters. The stamp «МОНЕТНЫЙ ДВОР» (COIN YARD) is executed in two lines, the word «МОНЕТНЫЙ» in the form of a semicircle, repeating the outline of the groove and horizontally written «ДВОР».
In the early versions of this sign, the order number was also located inside the groove, above the two rivets, later the number moved to a more familiar place, at the bottom of the order, just above the lower rivet.
In addition, collectors distinguish two subspecies of this type of order, the first, the hammer handle is located above the sickle blade, the second is under a blade.
