What to do with old banknotes

The old series of 100-krone and 200-krone notes are not legal tender after 30 May 2018.

While some banks and retailers continue to accept Series VII 100-krone and 200-krone banknotes, only Norges Bank is legally obliged to accept them. The Bank's obligation to exchange old banknotes applies for at least ten years after the withdrawal date. These 100-krone and 200-krone banknotes can be exchanged free of charge through 30 May 2028.

There are two alternatives for exchanging these banknotes:

  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.
    Payments will normally be made in 1-3 weeks. As Norges Bank is subject the Norwegian Money Laundering Act, the processing of larger amounts will require more time
  2. You can exchange old 100-krone and 200-krone banknotes for new ones at Norges Bank's depots in Tromsø, Trondheim, Bergen, Stavanger or Oslo Monday to Friday 9 AM - 3 PM. Please note that old banknotes in an amount exceeding NOK 10 000 will not be exchanged for new banknotes, but can be submitted as specified above and the amount will be transferred to your account.
