The table shows the total number of banknotes destroyed excluding notes from older series (applies to all banknote series up to and including Series V. From 2013, all denominations from Series VI are also excluded). Banknotes are destroyed when they are worn or damaged, or when a series is replaced.
Series VIII will be launched in the period 2017-2019. Putting new banknotes into circulation will skew the figures for denominations affected. Comparison with previous years is thus not possible.
