Sweden has introduced two new banknotes

From 3 October 2016 the Sveriges Riksbank has introduced two new banknotes in Sweden: the 100- and 500-kronor notes. These are the final two notes from the new banknote family which started with the first 4 notes in October 2015.

From the information on the website of the National Bank: 

  • Motif obverse: the actress Greta Garbo
  • Motif reverse: Stockholm, where Greta Garbo grew up
  • Measures: 133 x 66 millimetres
  • Thickness: 125 micrometres +/- 10%
  • Colour: Blue
  • Banknote paper: Manufactured of cotton fibres that are not fluorescent, which is to say they do not emit any light under ultraviolet light (other types of paper may emit a bluish glow).
  • Banknote numbers: The letters indicate the year in which the banknote was printed. A = 2013, B = 2014 etc. The two first digits indicate where on the printing sheet the banknote was printed. The final seven digits are a serial number.
