Cash management

Cash management

Confidence in a currency is rooted in cash. In Germany, it is the Bundesbank’s task to provide an adequate supply of high-quality euro banknotes and coins at all times. The Bundesbank provides retailers and banks with cash, withdraws counterfeit money from circulation and replaces damaged coins and banknotes.

Production and issuance of the €500 banknote will be discontinued

On 4 May 2016, the Governing Council decided that the €500 banknote will be excluded from the Europa series and the issuance of this denomination will be stopped around the end of 2018.

The new Europa series €100 and €200 banknotes

The European Central Bank and the national central banks of the Eurosystem began rolling out a second series of euro banknotes in May 2013. The new €100 and €200 banknotes will start circulating on 28 May 2019.
