The Magyar Nemzeti Bank (National Bank of Hungary) is going to change the design of some of the banknotes. The central bank will reshape and re-tint the notes.


The previous banknote was a little bit purple. It will be a quite spectacular change, the 5000 Forints will change to yellow.


The newly issued money will be upgraded with several signs and a new security mark. The new ones will be released and put in financial traffic from March 2017. The old ones can be used until the 31st of July 2017 and can be returned and refunded at the Magyar Nemzeti Bank until 2037.
