Last year, Norges Bank started to roll out the new series of banknotes in Norway. Although this series will include 50, 100, 200, 500 and 1000kr notes, the 100 and 200kr notes were rolled out around this time in 2017 – and time is nearly up to trade in your old money.
What does that mean though? If you’re holding onto any old currency for a rainy day or your next trip to Norway, it’s likely going to be a bit more difficult to trade in your money. Although some stores and banks will still accept the old currency, only Norges Bank will exchange the old for new bills.
Don’t fret though – Norges Bank will still swap out old notes for new ones for at least 10 years (just be prepared to fill out some paperwork about why it’s taken you so long to trade it in!)
