Following up on what they announced in October of this year, the Central Bank of Costa Rica (BCCR) remembers the dates from which the banknotes of ₡ 2,000, ₡ 5,000, ₡ 20,000 and ₡ 50,000 printed on cotton substrate will be withdrawn from circulation.
As of the dates indicated below, those banknotes will lose their value as a means of payment, but they may be exchanged or deposited in the financial entities:
Fifty thousand colones bills are withdrawn from circulation
(₡ 50,000) and those of twenty thousand colones (₡ 20,000), issued in
cotton paper. As of that date, they can be exchanged or
deposited in financial institutions.
Five thousand colones bills (₡ 5000), issued on cotton paper. From that date, they canbe exchanged or deposited in financial institutions.
Two thousand colones bills (₡ 2000), issued on cotton paper. From that date, they can be exchanged or deposited in financial institutions.
On the other hand, the bills printed on cotton paper of ₡ 10,000 will coexist as
means of payment with the new ones of these denominations, printed in polymer (material similar to plastic) and put into circulation in mid-October, to date that
the Central Bank establishes and that it will inform in a timely manner.
