The markka redemption period ended on 29 February 2012.
The Bank of Finland's obligation to redeem markka banknotes and coins expired on 29 February 2012. Markka banknotes and coins that have not been converted by that date will lose their face value, while retaining their numismatic value. These unconverted items will lose their book value and be written off the books. Until 2012, the Bank of Finland will continue to compile full statistics on markka banknotes and coins still in circulation.
