Old 5€ notes, do you still see them?

Post by BossaNova » Wed Sep 24, 2014 10:36 pm

I can't remember the last time I saw one passing by, slowly bur surely they all went vanished... At least in Luxembourg :flag-lu: and Portugal :flag-pt: , as far as I can see.

Do you still see the old fellow in your country? :note-5:

Yes. I see old :note-5: here in Greece. It seems that the new :note-5: are most common than the old :note-5: but i still see old :note-5: sometimes (not very often but sometimes, yes).

In Italy the old :note-5: are now quite rare, but sometimes it happens.

In the Netherlands they're still very common getting them out of the cash dispenser. And still in good condition!

yesterday: 47.5% oldies :D < in this batch only 1 Duisenberg

Since I began to track bundles from the local German Sparkasse in June 2014, the average is 4% on two bundles. But I also had bundles without any.
Getting them out of normal circulation (e.g. as change in a shop etc.) is nearly impossible :cry: .

@BossaNova:
I received a old Trichet- :note-5: as a change from the parking machine at the Central Station of Luxembourg, Luxembourg on September 1st this year :wink: . (Very difficult to find a place to park the car because of the braderie :x :roll: )

I have got 24 old fivers in this month, so you can see that old fivers are still quite common in Finland (if you compare with other countries.) Still, I have got alltogether 172 fivers in this September, so 148 fivers are new ones. I don't have any old fivers just now, but still see those almost every day.

Yes I still see some old :note-5: ..... but sometimes they really are in bad shape, just like this old Spanish :note-5: :wink:

Oh my god, I would love to have the old :note-5: get that old in :flag-nl: . A few days ago I found an E005/P :note-5: which still looks ok.
From ATMs it's getting less and less old :note-5: .

Just withdrew 20 pieces from a bank, turned out that 7 or so were old notes. Funny thing is that these notes were virtually in perfect shape and yet someone had tracked them all already in 2013. Based on this really small amount of data I'd assume there's still many of those in different bank vaults. In Finland (or at least in Helsinki) the circulation has been going pretty much in waves according to my experiences. The new ones seemed to take quite a slow start, but at one point it seemed that old ones were almost like chicken teeth. Now I just received old ones and based on their history and shape, it would be a surprise if there wasn't more popping up.

Just a heads up for people living or visiting Helsinki, these all will be put into circulation at the Hartwall Arena pub. Beer money best money, eh?
