Krona coins and banknotes


In the 1870s, Norway joined the Scandinavian Monetary Union (SMU), which aligned it with Sweden and Denmark for a single currency. However, by 1914, the SMU had fallen apart, and each nation decided to keep their own form of the “crown” (Krone)[3]. Interestingly, one Kroner still divides into 100 øre, but 50 øre coins have been out of circulation since 2012[4]. The coins that remain are[5]:



  • 1 kr
  • 5 kr
  • 10 kr
  • 20 kr


If you pay with a Norwegian banknote, businesses will round prices up or down to the nearest Kroner so you don’t receive any øre. On the other hand, card transactions take or add the exact amount from or into your bank account. NOK notes are colourful, showing symbols of maritime culture. Norwegian Krone will arrive in sets of[6]:



  • 50 kr
  • 100 kr
  • 200 kr
  • 500 kr
  • 1,000 kr
