I still have old banknotes in Luxembourg and Belgian francs. What can I do with them? And what about banknotes in other currencies?

The banknotes denominated in Luxembourg francs and issued by the Institut monétaire luxembourgeois which had legal tender status on 31 December 2001 can be exchanged indefinitely at the BCL; however, since December 2004 coins can no longer be exchanged.

Around 200 million Luxembourg francs are still in circulation.

The counters of the BCL, situated on 43 avenue Monterey, are open to the public from Monday to Friday from 10:30am to 04:00pm.

Old foreign currencies from other European countries, including Belgium, cannot be exchanged at the BCL. Instead, one needs to contact the central bank of the country of origin of the currency.
