The Norwegian Krone (plural kroner) is the official currency of Norway and is identified by the Norwegian Krone symbol kr or currency code NOK. As with Danish currency, the name krone literally translates to English word crown. The Krone is subdivided into 100 Øre,similar to how dollar currencies are divided into 100 cents.
In 1873, Sweden and Denmark formed the Scandinavian Monetary union to merge their currencies to the gold standard. Norway joined the union two years later in 1875 and the central banks in each country acted as a single reserve bank for the krone. This allowed the three Scandinavian currencies to have equal value when traded with another. However, WW1 forced the disbanding of the gold standard system, but the countries decided to keep the krone as their primary currencies even if it was not interchangeable between the other kroner.
What to spend your Norwegian kroner on:

Excellent service all around from the ordering to the lovely person at the Travelex branch to receive the order. Order arrived ahead of time at the branch and collection was entirely painless. I had trouble initially seeing on the website that I had missed a required field in the form was the only minor glitch in the process, due to the colouring of the submit button it looked like the form was ready to submit when it wasn't however reading top to bottom would have helped in the first place. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this service to others.Dustin J

Everything was great except the delivery date by the contractor. I asked for a particular date when I was going to be home but the delivery contractor's email indicated they were going to deliver on a different day. I complained to Travelex and fortunately they were able to get the package removed from the delivery van and then re-delivered on the day that I was home.Marilyn
