20 euro notes
« on: April 02, 2016, 12:22:31 pm »

 hi
    I have some 20 euro notes that I brought back with me from last years holiday
      I have just found out a new 20 euro note started at the end of last year
      I can not see anywhere where a date has been mentioned when the old notes will stop being legal tender
        does any body know if I will still be able to use the old notes for this years holiday

                              cheers

Mike

No problem. They'll be legal for years probably and even when they're not you'll be able to change them at a bank.

"Banknotes of the first series will always retain their value

The date when the first series of euro banknotes ceases to be legal tender will be announced well in advance. However, the banknotes of the first series will always retain their value: they can be exchanged for an unlimited period of time at the Eurosystem NCBs."

From here...
