If there are any doubts regarding the genuineness or acceptability of a coin, an acceptability evaluation must be conducted. For this you will have to fill out a request form (available at the Bank of Lithuania cash offices). You will receive our conclusion, determining whether the coins will be exchanged or not, within 30 days.

If the acceptability evaluation shows that the circulation and/or commemorative coins cannot be exchanged, they will not be returned and remain at the Bank of Lithuania to be destroyed.
