Damaged and worn coins
The regulations for redeeming damaged coins are documented in the Riksbank’s Statute-Book, RBFS 1993:5 (see link below). Section 14 states that:

“If a banknote or coin has been intentionally altered so that its size or appearance deviates from that announced, redemption of the note or coin may be refused.”

The Riksbank thus redeems coins that have become generally worn or soiled but, in accordance with the paragraph above, the Riksbank refuses to redeem coins that have been damaged deliberately, or in a machine or in a shredding plant.

The Riksbank does not have a cashier’s office open to the general public. If you have any further questions, please contact:
