JANUARY 2, 2014 will be the last day the National Bank of Slovakia (NBS) will exchange coins in Slovak crowns for euros. After that, crown coins will no longer be exchangeable.

All those who still have Slovak coins they want to exchange for euro coins can do so every workday from before noon in the NBS headquarters, or its regional offices in Nové Zámky, Banská Bystrica, Žilina, Košice and Poprad, Jana Kováčová from the NBS press office informed.
