What to do with old banknotes

It is now nearly a year since the new 100-krone and 200-krone banknotes were put into circulation. The old series of 100-krone and 200-krone notes will no longer be legal tender after 30 May 2018.

Norges Bank recommends that you spend your old notes or deposit them in a bank before 30 May. 

What can you do after 30 May 2018?

While many banks and retailers will continue to accept old 100-krone and 200-krone banknotes, only Norges Bank will be obliged to accept them after 30 May 2018. There are two alternatives for exchanging these banknotes after this date:

  1. You can have them deposited in a bank:
    Fill out the banknote exchange form
    Send the form with banknotes enclosed to:
    Norges Bank, Cashier's Department, PO Box 1179, Sentrum, 0107 Oslo
    You can also deliver the form and banknotes in person at our main office at Bankplassen 2 in Oslo.
    Norges Bank will transfer funds equal to the value of exchanged notes to the account indicated on the form.
  2. You can exchange old 100-krone and 200-krone banknotes for new ones by contacting Norges Bank's depots. Since new banknotes will not be exchanged for amounts in excess of NOK 10 000, you must send or deliver the form and banknotes as specified above.
