Governed by the Norges Bank, the krone is equivalent to 12 cents of a United States dollar. It was introduced in 1875 in order to replace the Norwegian speciedaler, and soon after, Norway became part of the Scandinavian Monetary Union, which began in 1873 and disassembled in 1914. At the time that the Scandinavian Monetary Union broke apart, Norway along with Denmark and Sweden, decided to keep their designated names for their currencies. As of 1992, the Central Bank of Norway also lifted their fixed exchange rate for a floating exchange rate, and has remained to this day.
The coins that are frequently used in Norway include the 1kr, 5kr, 10kr, and 20kr, whereas the bank notes frequently in circulation include the 50kr, 100kr, 200kr, and 500kr. There is also a 1000kr in print, but it is rarely used and circulated.
