Icelandic kronur banknotes and coins

One Icelandic kronur (kr) can be subdivided into 100 aurar, although aurars are no longer in circulation due to their low value and the smallest unit of currency you're likely to come across is the 1 krona coin.

There are five denominations of Icelandic kronur banknotes in circulation: kr 500, kr 1000, kr 2000, kr 5000 and kr 10000; and five coin denominations: kr 1, kr 5, kr 10, kr 50 and kr 100.

The name 'krona' is derived from the Latin word 'corona' which means 'crown'. Krona were introduced to Iceland by the Danish who ruled the country in the 19th century. When Iceland gained independence from Denmark in 1918, they kept the krona as a currency but replaced the crown motif with a coat of arms.
