On October 1, the Central Bank of Sweden (Sveriges Riksbank) will open its doors to the public. From that day it will be possible to pay with the new 20-, 50- 200- and 1,000-krona banknotes. Between 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. on October 1, members of the public will be able to exchange money for the new 200-krona banknote at the Riksbank and then browse an exhibition about the new banknotes.
It will also be possible to exchange money for a new 200-krona banknote at the Sveriges Riksbank in Stockholm. Each person may exchange money for one 200-krona banknote. Payment is made in cash, ideally using the exact amount. It will not be possible to pay with a card.
“We want to highlight our launch of the banknote and coin changeover, so we are inviting the public to come to the bank where they will get the chance to exchange money for a new 200-krona note. They can also browse the six banknote exhibitions that we have now put together here at the Riksbank. We also have staff on site who can answer any questions about banknotes and coins,” says Governor of the Riksbank Stefan Ingves.
