The Krona is the official currency of the Kingdom of Sweden and has been since 1873. It was brought in by the countries comprising the Scandinavian Monetary Union and replaced the Riksdaler Riksmynt.

The currency is also known as the Swedish ‘crown’ as Krona translates to crown in English. The Krona is also in use on the Aland Islands situated in the Baltic Sea off the coast of Finland. One Krona is subdivided into 100 Ore.
