Nothing but older series notes from an ATM withdrawal!

Post by goldeneye » Mon Nov 19, 2018 2:32 pm

I decided to withdraw some cash this morning on my final day in Riga, and went to an ATM in Old Town Riga and out came six older series €50 notes, including two Trichets and zero Europas.

Normally that won't be an issue, however, I live in the US and have only three more days in Eurozone land and now will have to spend these since I know those are going out of circulation in the next year or two in favor of the Europa €50s, which came out last year and I don't have another trip to Europe slated for at least 2 more years, bar any event that can trigger a return trip to Europe sooner than that.

Has anyone else managed to get that many older notes in one ATM withdrawal lately?

Don't worry, in the Netherlands they are still quite common. They will remain legal tender indefinitely, just like all U.S. dollar bills, so you won't be forced to spend them right away.

Yeah, there are no announced dates for circulation end. Even 2002 fivers are still around. "Old" fifties, I should imagine, should remain for another fifty years. 8)

Also in Finland they are common in circulation. :note-50: is the one of the old notes that I most often see in the circulation (also on my job). Still, not even half of the :note-50: seem to be old series nowadays.
