I have a 20 kroner note from when I was in Sweden in 1995, but I think that I read on the central bank's website that it is no longer legal tender.  At least it's still crisp unc!

 

 

It would depend which 20 kronor note you have. Here is the Bank of Sweden's link. Here is a large view of the soon to be invalid note and a large view of the one that will remain legal tender.

Got 8 crisp UNC € 10 notes from the ATM this morning:

 

short code    serial number
P001F6         X12857577554
P001F6         X12857577563
P001F6         X12857577572
P001F6         X12857577581

P001F6         X12857577599
P001F6         X12857577609
P001F6         X12857577617
P001F6         X12857577626

 

These notes are printed in sheets and then cut apart. Apparently there's mutliple sheets cut at the same time and those stacks of notes are bundled. That would explain the serial number inscreasing by 9 each time. However, there appears to be one note missing...... Thus one sheet been taken out perhaps, for a quality check?

 

I spent 5 of them already, so I have 3 left, the top 3 ones.

I may be wrong, but actually I do believe you have "consecutive" notes. The reason the notes skip by 9s is because of the check sum feature. The serial numbers in between do not exist for the Netherlands.

I am pretty sure mine is the invalid one. What can I do with it? Will it self destruct on January 1? I'm sure gald I don't have to worry about this sort of thing in the US!

The reason that our swedish 20kr (first issue) and the 100kr and 500kr banknotes (without the foil strip) is being invalid, is to narrow the range of valid issues. This will make it easier for the public and the banks and shops. There has also been a lot of forgeries of the older 500kr banknote.

But do not be troubled, all swedish banknotes with the denomination krona(or) can be redeemable at the swedish riksbank, even the lowly 1kr banknote. :ninja:
