17 of the 19 national central banks in the euro area will stop issuing the €500 banknote as from 27 January 2019. The Federal Bank of Germany and the Austrian National Bank have an additional period until 26 April 2019 for logistical reasons.
The €500 notes in circulation will retain their value and will continue to be legal tender, so you can still use them as a means of payment and also exchange them at any time in the national central banks of the euro area.
In May 2016, the European Central Bank decided to stop producing these large denominations suspected of facilitating illegal activities. In practice, the last banknotes were produced in 2014 and since then demand has been covered by the banknotes in circulation and in stock.
