CNB expands schedule of issuance for 2021–2025

The Czech National Bank's schedule of banknote and coin issuance for 2021-2025 is to be expanded to include a CZK 1,000 banknote with an additional print of a logo to mark the 30th anniversary of the establishment of the CNB and the Czech currency. This banknote will be issued on 8 February 2023.

Thirty years after the establishment of the independent Czech Republic, the CNB will issue a 2008 version CZK 1,000 banknote with an additional print on the obverse side commemorating the establishment of the Czech currency and central bank. The additional print will consist of the CNB's anniversary logo and a motif of a 1993 1,000-koruna banknote stamp referring to the Czech-Slovak currency separation and the stamping of Czechoslovak banknotes. The print, whose design will be disclosed later, will not affect the value or validity of the banknote.

The CZK 1,000 banknote with an additional print will be produced in a limited run of 200,000 pieces. It will be possible to obtain the note from 8 February 2023 onwards in exchange for other Czech coins or banknotes only at the cash desks of the CNB's offices while stocks last.

The planned CZK 1,000 banknote will be the second circulating banknote with an additional print to be issued by the CNB. A circulating CZK 100 banknote with an additional print of a logo marking the 100th anniversary of the introduction of the Czechoslovak koruna was issued in 2019.

The complete Schedule of issuance for commemorative banknotes and coins in 2021-2025 is available on the CNB website under Banknotes and coins > Numismatics.
