For a discussion of the financial and banking crisis that hit Sweden in the early s see the article History of Sweden —present and Swedish banking rescue. Unlike the USA and Canada which by policy never declare issued money invalid, Sweden and most other European countries have a date when older series of banknotes or older coin designs are invalid and are no longer legal tender. From the years to banknotes and coins were circulated at a near constant level of around 12, krona per capita, but in a modified 1,krona banknote with a motion security strip was produced.
Within seven years the banknotes without the strip were declared invalid, leaving only a radically reduced number of banknotes with foil valid. The Vasa 1,krona banknote without the foil strip became invalid after 31 December , and the pieces with the foil strip are invalid after 30 June Also the Swish mobile payment system was established in Sweden in and become a popular alternative to cash payments.
Although many countries are performing larger and larger share of transactions by electronic means, Sweden is unique in that it is also reducing its cash in circulation. In upcoming years Sweden may be surpassed by Mexico, and Turkey.
The circulation levels in the table above were reported to the Bank for International Settlements. Possible discrepancies with these statistics and other sources may be because some sources exclude "commemorative banknotes and coins" 3.
Circulation levels of cash on a per capita basis, are reduced by The Riksbanken predicted that between and , the amount of cash in circulation will decline by 20 to 50 percent. Speculation about Sweden declaring all banknotes and coins invalid at some future date is widespread in the media with Björn Ulvaeus as a celebrity advocate of a cashless Sweden which he believes will result in a safer society because simple robbery will involve stealing goods that must be fenced.
The Riksbank deposit rate the deposit rate is the rate of interest banks receive when they deposit funds in their accounts at the Riksbank overnight and is normally 0. The deposit rate went negative on July 9, and is forecast to remain negative through the fourth quarter of The suspicion became widespread that the huge reduction in circulation levels of the highest denomination banknote is related to monetary policy.
Traditional economic theory holds that people will convert bank accounts into cash without the inducement of earning interest. Cecilia Skingsley has stated that "This is a development steered by market forces and not by the authorities.
The Riksbank will continue issuing banknotes and coins as long as there is demand for them in society. It is our statutory duty and we will of course live up to it. The value of the payments between households, companies and authorities in Sweden amounts to about 20, kronor annual per capita in cash. In shops, almost one in seven payments is made in cash. More than half of the adult population has the Swish payment app. Annual withdrawals from Swedish ATMs in amount to 15, kronor per capita.
According to Skingsley, "what some consumers, smaller companies and local clubs often see as a problem, is not so much getting hold of cash, but being able to deposit it in a bank account. To see how circulation of the Swedish krona ranks compared to other currencies see Bank for International Settlements Red Books. The e-krona is a proposed electronic currency to be issued directly by the Riksbank.
It is different than the electronic transfers using commercial bank money as central bank money has no nominal credit risk, as it stands for a claim on the central bank, which cannot go bankrupt. The declining use of cash in Sweden is going to be reinforced cyclically.
As more and more businesses find they can have a functional business without accepting cash, the number of businesses refusing to accept cash will increase. That will re-enforce the need for more and more citizens to get the Swish app which is already used by half the population. Cash machines, which are controlled by a Swedish bank consortium, are being dismantled by the hundreds, especially in rural areas. The Riksbank has not taken a decision on issuing e-krona. First, the Riksbank needs to investigate a number of technical, legal and practical issues.
Although it may appear simple at first glance to issue e-krona, this is something entirely new for a central bank and there is no precedent to follow". If the Riksbank chooses to issue e-krona, it is not to replace cash, but to act as a complement to it. It is our statutory duty and we will of course continue to live up to it," concluded Deputy Governor Cecilia Skingsley.
