What to do with invalid coins

Coins that are no longer legal tender cannot be redeemed by the banks or the Riksbank. These coins can be regarded as scrap metal and can therefore be left for metal recycling. For questions regarding the potential value to a collector of any coins, please refer to numismatists/coin dealers.
