 The new banknotes will be put into circulation starting from 30 September 2019. Next year, however, the new 10,000 lek banknote will be introduced.

Yesterday the central bank of Albania presented the new banknote series, a very important moment not only for the bank itself but for the entire country.

After more than twenty years, in fact, the design of the banknotes has been modified with the introduction of new security elements: all this gives to the new Albanian banknote the appearance of a modern, resistant and high-quality banknote.

The presentation ceremony

During the presentation ceremony the governor of the central bank of Albania, Gent Sejko, said that the new series will be introduced gradually into circulation and that, therefore, it will be used at first along with the old banknotes.

"We present you the new series of banknotes, hoping that will be welcomed by the public. The 10,000 leks bill will be put into circulation next year, but its design is not yet finished and so we preferred not to show it yet. However, its design has already been chosen and will be dedicated to the national anthem and the figure of Asdreni "- the governor said.

The new banknotes will be introduced in this way:

The new 200 and 5000 leks banknotes will be put into circulation starting from 30 September 2019.

The new 10000 and 1000 leks notes will be put into circulation starting from 2020.

The new 2000 leks banknotes will be put into circulation starting from 2021.

The new 500 leks banknotes will be put into circulation starting from 2022.

The new series will also present other new features. For the first time, in fact, there will be a polymer banknote - plastic material that represents an innovation in the banknote production industry since it is more resistant than paper - the 200 leks one.

The most short-term change, however, concerns the 10 lek coins which will be replaced with a new series, which will have the same appearance, size and weight as the current one but which will differ in the year of issue and in the words "Lekë" and "Shqipërisë" (will be written with the Ë and not with the E).
