About this capture

 PRINT 
Extended period for redeeming old banknotes
The Riksdag (the Swedish Parliament) decided on 27 October 2004, following a proposal from the Riksbank that the 100-krona and 500-krona banknotes without a foil strip and see-through picture, the slightly larger 20-krona banknotes with a bluer tone and the silver-coloured 50-öre coins would cease to be legal tender on 31 December 2005.
 
The Riksbank has decided to extend the redemption period for these banknotes until further notice.However, the extension does not apply to the silver-coloured 50-öre coins.
 
To redeem the banknotes, you should go to your bank. Any fees for redeeming the banknotes are set by the respective bank.
