Key information about the Norwegian krone

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 currency code of the Norwegian krone is NOK and its symbol is kr.

The coins currently in circulation are:

  • 1 krone
  • 5 krone
  • 10 krone

If you are planning to take more than 25,000 krone with you to Norway, you will need to declare it upon arrival.
