Currency Information on Norwegian Krone - NOK — Norwegian krone – Kr
The currency of Norway subdivides into 100 ore, however the ore only exist electronically. The krone replaced the Norwegian specidaler at a 4kr:1s ratio in 1875, when Norway became part of the Scandinavian Monetary Union.
Over time, the krone has been pegged to the British pound, the US dollar, the Reichsmark and finally, to the pound again. Now the exchange rate is floated.
Coins in denominations of 1, 5, 10 and 20 krone are available, as well as banknotes in denominations of 50, 100, 200, 500 and 1000 kr, though the 1000 kr notes is not used regularly.
I came to the UK to study a PHD four years ago and I'm working in a full-time job now. Whenever I need to send money to back to my country, either to pay some bills or to help my family out, I always turn to companies specialised in international money transfer. You can lose lots of money if you don’t get expert information on foreign exchange!
