Just over SEK 8 billion left – banks can still accept older banknotes and coins

Friday 30 June is the last day the older 100- and 500-krona banknotes and the older 1-, 2- and 5-krona coins can be used as legal tender. It is still possible to deposit them in a bank account, however.

There are still coins to a value of SEK 1.8 billion and old banknotes to a value of SEK 6.4 billion out in circulation. Once these coins and banknotes have become invalid, you will no longer be able to use them as a means of payment. You will still be able to deposit them in a bank account, however. 

Denomination  Millions  SEK million 
100  16 1 562
500  10 4 844
1  961 961
2  4 8
5  167 837
Total  1 157 8 211

The figures in the table have been rounded off.
