Albania schedules new banknote family for fall of 2019

The Banka e Shqiperise (Bank of Albania) announced a new 10,000-leke banknote last year for a 2020-introduction. As it now turns out this issue will be part of a new family of Albanian banknotes.

According to the site Invest in Albania the first new banknotes of 200- and 5,000 leke will be issued in the fall of 2019. The new series will have the same theme but will be redesigned with new elements and will have more security features than the current series.

Update 14-7-2019: The new 200-leke banknote will be printed on polymer!

Hello Steven, please check the Bank of Albania website regarding this new series. Photos have been released. The new Polymer 200 leke will be put into circulation Sep 30 2019, along with the 5000 leke. The remaining notes will then be introduced in the next 3 years. Enjoy!
