Changes in Swedish banknote and coin series 2005

In order to reduce the risk of counterfeiting and to facilitate the recognition of genuine banknotes, the Sveriges Riksbank has decided to increase the security details in 50-kronor and 1000-kronor banknotes.

It is the General Council of the Riksbank that will decide on the design for the new banknotes. The Riksbank proposes that the new banknotes should be introduced simultaneously in autumn 2005. The current 50-kronor and 1000-kronor banknotes will remain legal tender even after 2005.
