On April 26, 2019, the Central Bank of Germany will issue 500 euro notes. Tickets will be available at the National Bank of Austria. On January 26, 2019, other Central Banks of the Eurozone will stop issuing the purple ticket three months before. Towards the end of 2018, the production and issuance of 500 euro banknotes will be interrupted, which was decided by the European Central Bank. This measure was taken in the hope that financing of terrorism and black work will be reduced. They will continue to be legal tender and may be redeemed for an unlimited period of time.
