Exchanging other legacy currencies

As a rule, the OeNB does not handle foreign cash. If you wish to exchange foreign cash that is legal tender, please use the services of a commercial bank.

Should you need to exchange legacy currencies of other euro area countries, you will need to do so at the respective national central bank or one of its branch offices. Please note that exchange deadlines may differ from country to country.
