Customs of the krona
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’.
Frequently used banknotes
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).

very easy to deal with
very easy to deal with - the only hesitance about 5 stars (apart from the exchange rate which is reasonable but could be better) is that they are no longer in Sydney International airport, and the time required to deliver the order - and even with several days notice on one occasion the currency had not arrived by the time I needed to collect it. However, they are better than the competition in Sydney International airport .Richard
