About the currency
Coins and notes
All up, there are only nine pieces of currency in circulation in Norway – 4 coins and 5 notes. The coins range through 1, 5, 10 and 20 krones apiece, notes through 50, 100, 200, 500 and 1,000 krones.
Facts about the currency
- You can use your NOK in Svalbard, Jan Mayen, Bouvet Island, Queen Maud Land and Peter I Island.
- If you have 25 or less of a single coin on hand and want to pay for something, good news – it’s Norwegian law that up to 25 of the same denomination must be accepted as tender.
- The 50 ore coin has officially been out of circulation since 2012, so if you find one, you have until May 2022 to cash it in at Norges Bank.
