According to Stefan Igves, the Swedish central bank governor , “Sweden will get new banknotes and coins. We will also get a new denomination, a 200-krona banknote. A familiar friend will also make a comeback as we will begin to issue the 2-krona coin again.

The new banknotes will have new security features that provide better protection against counterfeiting, and the coins will be smaller and lighter.

The banknotes and coins will be introduced in two stages, in October 2015 and October 2016. For a period, both the current and the new banknotes and coins will be in circulation at the same time.

The current banknotes and coins will gradually become invalid (apart from the 10-krona coin which will not be replaced). So as not to risk being left with invalid banknotes and coins at home, pay with them or deposit them in your bank account as soon as possible.

When you get a new banknote, tilt it to make sure that it is genuine. You should see images that change color and images that move and shift between motifs.”

For example, you can verify the authenticity of the new 200 crowns bill as follows:

 

200 kr

 

The new banknotes have a color-shifting image linked to the person portrayed on the note.

The image and the denomination gradually change color between gold and green when you tilt the banknote.
