Sandviken Municipality (Sandvikens kommun) is a municipality in Gävleborg County, in east central Sweden. The seat is the town Sandviken.
The present municipality was created in 1971 through the amalgamation of the City of Sandviken (itself instituted in 1943) with a number of surrounding rural municipalities.
The coat of arms was granted to the then City of Sandviken upon its institution in 1943. The device in the middle is a steam hammer. After the municipality reform of 1971 the arms was taken over by the new, larger, entity.
Note: As Sandviken means the sandy bay there are numerous other places of that name throughout Scandinavia.
