Schilling banknotes with expired exchange deadlines
The exchange period of 20 years for all schilling banknotes withdrawn before the introduction of the Euro (January 1, 1999) has expired, so these banknotes can no longer be exchanged into euro at the OeNB.
Examples of banknotes whose exchange deadlines have expired are shown below. Please note that this list does not include all the banknotes issued by the Oesterreichische Nationalbank or its predecessors since 1816.
Schilling coins that can be exchanged indefinitely
In addition to the Schilling circulation coins pictured here, the OeNB also exchanges all silver Schilling coins issued from 1955 to 2001 at their face value (ATS 25, ATS 50, ATS 100 or ATS 500).
Please note that depending on the current silver price, Schilling silver coins may sell at higher prices at professional coin dealers.
Schilling coins with expired exchange deadlines
5 and 10 schilling silver coins that ceased to be legal tender in 1969 and 1975, respectively, can no longer be exchanged at the OeNB. Some features of these silver coins differ from those of 5- and 10-schilling cupronickel coins that can be exchanged indefinitely at the OeNB.
