The old 2,000 forint and 5,000 forint bills will remain in circulation until the end of next July, but they may still be exchanged, free of charge, at banks and post offices for a period of three years and at the central bank for 20 years.
The NBH upgraded the security features on the 10,000 forint bill late in 2014 and followed suit with the 20,000 bill a year later.
