Old Ft 500 bank notes expiring

Old Ft 500 bank notes will cease to be legal tender after October 31, the MNB warned on Wednesday.

From November 1 only the new Ft 500 bank notes issued from February will be accepted.

Old Ft 500 bank notes issued before 2018 can be exchanged free of charge at banks and post offices for three more years and at the MNB for 20 years.
