The Krone is the currency in use by the Kingdom of Norway and the territory of Svalbard. Like the Swedish Krona, the word translates as ‘crown’ in English. It was first introduced in 1875 as a replacement for the old currency of the Norwegian Speciedaler.

The Krone is subdivided by 100 øre and is commonly exchanged for Euros.
