Two years after initially unveiling their designs, the National Bank of the Republic of Macedonia introduced banknotes in the new denominations of 200- and 2,000-denar on 15 December 2016, and is withdrawing current 5,000-denar banknotes (B211) to rebalance the structure of banknotes in circulation. Commercial banks will replace 5,000-denar notes from 15 December 2016 up to 28 February 2017. As of 1 March 2017, they will be exchangeable only at the National Bank of the Republic of Macedonia.
