Notes and coins

The Riksbank is responsible for providing Swedish banknotes and coins. The Riksbank has an office through which it supplies banknotes to the banks and receives them back from the banks. The Riksbank also supplies and receives in return coins through a cash-in-transit company dealing with coins on behalf of the Riksbank. The banks, or their agents, then distribute the banknotes and coins to the retail trade and the general public.
