About the currency
Coins and notes
It’s pretty unlikely you’ll come across any öre coins – they were discontinued in September 2010. Since then, there have only been 3 coins in circulation, worth kr1, kr5 and kr10 a piece. There are only 5 notes beyond that, valued at kr20, kr50, kr100, kr200 and kr500.
Facts about the currency
- Like a number of currencies around the world, the ‘krona’ translates to ‘crown’ in English.
- A lot of Swedes are cashless – they have enough faith in their electronic systems that they never carry cash.
- The krona is perhaps even more travelled than you – sitting as the 11th most traded currency in the world.
- Make sure to declare anything greater than 10,000 euros (or the equivalent across any currencies) on your way into Sweden.
