Currency News 2007

Starting from September 1, 2007, only the new – issued after 2006 – 1000 forint (HUF) banknotes will be accepted as legal tender. The new banknotes have two security features on the front: a copper-colored metallic stripe with holographic effects and an iridescent print.

After August 31, 2007 the withdrawn old banknotes can be exchanged only at commercial banks, the Hungarian Central Bank (Magyar Nemzeti Bank – MNB), savings co-operatives (takarékszövetkezetek), and post offices.
