Withdrawal of the 1000 Norwegian Krone banknote
In 2017 the Bank of Norway began a process of renewing its banknotes that ends on November 14, 2020 with the withdrawal of the 1000 Norwegian Krone banknote.
What banknote will be withdrawn?
The banknote that will no longer be in circulation is the 1000 Norwegian Krone banknote on which the portrait of the Norwegian painter Edward Munch appears. This banknote belongs to series 7 and is the last one of this series that was still in circulation. Thus, from November 14, the only Norwegian Krone banknotes in circulation will be the ones of series 8.
How do I exchange my old Norwegian Kroner banknotes into Euros?
Old Norwegian Kroner banknotes can only be exchanged at the Central Bank of Norway. Once removed, they can no longer be exchanged anywhere outside the country.
That is why we notify you before the end of the withdrawal period for the 1000 Norwegian Krone note, so that you can go to your nearest office to exchange them for Euros.
Although the official withdrawal deadline is November 14, keep in mind that at the Eurochange offices we may stop accepting them a few days before. To date we do not have a confirmed date, so we recommend you to check your Norwegian Kroner banknotes and make the exchange as soon as possible.
What do I do if I have other older Norwegian Kroner banknotes?
As we told you above, banknotes that are out of circulation cannot be exchanged anywhere else than the Central Bank of Norway. Some of them can be exchanged for free and the older ones are exchanged for a fee of 250 Kroner (about 22 Euros).
