The Low Down on Swedish Currency

Currency:

krona

Currency code:

SEK

Central Bank:

Sveriges Riksbank

Currency symbol:

kr (krona, pl. kronor)

Bank notes:

20 kr, 50 kr, 100 kr, 200 kr, 500 kr, 1000 kr

Coins:

1 kr, 2 kr, 5 kr, 10 kr



The krona has been Sweden’s currency for nearly 150 years. Each krona consists of 100 öre, however there are no longer any coins or notes in any denominations of öre – the smallest value you will find in legal tender is 1 krona.



Tipping in restaurants is not as expected in Sweden as it is in other European countries, so don’t worry about leaving a tip unless your service was exceptional, in which case 5-10% is customary. In bars and taxis, the typical approach is one of ‘keep the change’.



The five main banknotes are for 20, 50, 100, 500, and 1000 krona bills. The people portrayed on the 2015 versions of the bills include Greta Garbo (100), Ingmar Bergman (200) and Birgit Nilsson (500).
