Cashing in on the crown
The krone – which translates as ‘crown’ in English – was introduced in Norway in 1875, with 100 øre to every krone. As of 2012, coins to the value of 50 øre are no longer legal tender. The coins currently in circulation are for 1, 5, 10 or 20 krone.
If you are planning to take more than 25,000 krone with you to Norway, you will need to declare it upon arrival.
Frequently used banknotes
The banknotes are to the value of 50 (green), 100 (red), 200 (blue), 500 (orange) and 1,000 (purple) krone. They each feature a famous Norwegian, including painter Edvard Munch, whose portrait features on the 1,000 krone note.
