Spend'em If You Got'em

3 posts in this topic


The NBU announced this week that 25 Kopiika coins and banknotes introduced into circulation before 2003 "will cease being legal tender and will be withdrawn from circulation on 1 October 2020". Just say in.


Tried spending an old Ukrainian "junk" note today, I got a dirty look and had to go to the end of the line.:( The cashier didn't seem to think it was as funny as I did, they were pretty pissed at me so I decided to forgo the explanation and just paid for my beer (the second time) and left. I did throw a 25 Kopiika coin in the give a penny take a penny before I left, HA! Going to see if I can trade my 5 year old nephew for something or try to pass it off as a $500 bill in Monopoly (our set is pretty beat up, I don't think anyone will notice). Spend'em if you got'em.

Anyone else have a story about trying to "unload" your "junk" banknotes?

No. I've never tried anything like that. There was a time when a guy in front of me paid for two beers with 28 mercury dimes. I bought them off the very confused clerk with 3 $1 bills.


I've gotten a few "keepers" in my change, I consider anything pre 65' a keeper, I also pay attention for major errors as well but have not come across one. Never had anything like that happen to me, yet.
