50 and 1000 Krona will become invalid after 2013

Tuesday I wrote about the 50 and 1000 Krona from Sweden which will become invalid after 31 December 2013. More news is available now from the website of the Swedish Central Bank, the Sveriges Riksbank. This is part of the preparations for the replacement of the current banknote series which will begin in 2015. From the website:
