New banknotes in circulation: MXN, AUD y NOK
In recent months several new banknotes have been put into circulation. We tell you how they are, what currencies and where you can find more information.
New note of 200 Mexican Pesos
In September 2019, the Central Bank of Mexico has started issuing a new 200 Mexican Pesos note. This new note has a different design from the previous one in which the historical legacy and the natural wealth of the country are reflected.
At the moment, several series of banknotes coexist and the Central Bank of Mexico will renew the ones that have still been issued from the G series: those of 20, 50, 100 and 1,000 Pesos.

New 20 Australian Dollar note
In 2016, the Reserve Bank of Australia began issuing a new series of banknotes. The first notes that were renewed were those of 5, 10 and 50 Australian Dollars. In October 2019, the new 20 Australian Dollar note came into circulation. In this way, only the new 100 Australian Dollar note remains to be launched, which is scheduled to be launched in 2020.
At the moment all Australian Dollar notes of the old and new series are valid and can be used interchangeably.

New 1,000 Norwegian Krone note
In November 2019, the Central Bank of Norway has put into circulation the last note that was still to be updated, the new note of 1,000 Norwegian Krone. With this note, the process of renewal of the Norwegian Krone that began in 2017 ends.
The old notes of 1,000 Norwegian Krone will remain valid until their withdrawal in November 2020. The other denominations of the old series have already been withdrawn, so they have no legal validity.

How to change banknotes out of circulation?
Banknotes out of circulation of any currency can only be exchanged at the issuing bank, which is usually the Central Bank of the country.
Sometimes there are deadlines to change old bills and, although it is not usual, some charge a small fee for making the change.
It is best that you look for the information on the website of the country's Central Bank.
