Overview - NOK

The Krone is the currency of Norway and has the ISO code NOK. The krone was introduced in 1875, when Norway joined the Scandinavian Monetary Union, which had been established in 1873 and ran until 1914. The Krone was initially on a gold standard at a rate of 2480 Krone – 1 ounce gold which was the case until 1931 when it was pegged to the British Pound. In 1939 in was briefly pegged to the US dollar, then during the war pegged to the Reichsmark. Following the war, it was pegged back to the pound which was maintained until 1949 when the pound devalued relative to the U.S. dollar. In December 1992 the Norges Bank (Central Bank of Norway) abandoned the fixed exchange rate in favor of a floating exchange rate.


Current bank notes are 50, 100, 200, 500 and 1000.


The value of Norwegian kroner compared to other currencies varies considerably from one year to another, mainly based on changes in oil prices (Norway has historically been a key oil exporter) and interest rates. As of 2009 the Norwegian krone is the tenth most traded currency on the foreign exchange market.
