the Danes should not expect that the atm machine spits out fresh 500-kronesedler out, when they will raise in the bank.
The latest delivery of large banknotes has been delayed as a consequence of the coronasituationen in Europe. It indicated the central Bank already in may in a press release.
Now inform the press officer at just the national Bank Teis Hald Jensen to Ekstra Bladet, that one expect, therefore, that there may occur a shortage of the banknote.
'We can not confirm that there is a shortage of them yet, but we expect that there will be', he writes in an email Thursday morning.
The new 500-kronesedler had arrived from a French printing presses at this time, but the decommissioning of both France and Denmark have delayed the delivery.
'The extensive and extraordinary shutdown of the society in connection with the covid-19 has been the national Bank to choose to postpone the delivery of the new 500-kronesedler. Until delivery later in the year, you can therefore bl.a. notice that some atms will pay out in any other denomination than 500 dollars,' wrote the central Bank in may.
the national Bank writes on, to seize the opportunity to introduce a number of enhanced safety measures, which makes it even more difficult to counterfeit banknotes.
