- Although ":-" is a common way to mark prices, it's not aknowledged by law. Besides there are many more ways to mark a price, such as writing the öres in superscript or by using ",-", ";-" or other similar symbols. There are only two ways to write the currency which are mentioned in the law, and those are "SEK" and "kr". The writing ":-" comes from the old bank checks, where you were supposed to write a sum on the form "kronas:öres", and when there were no öres, that field was just crossed over, thus giving "kronas:-". Today, the writing with ":-" occurs even when the price isn't an even number of kronas. Yenx 13:31, 8 April 2007 (UTC)
As you say Yenx, :- is a way of expressing that there are no öres in the sum. A sum of 50 öres can consequently be weitten as -:50 as it is also done sometimes. Today, the usage of the :- sign when there are öres in the sum is nothing but bad knowledge of the correct way of writing. You never see "big" stores like Åhléns write like that. // Stora Kogha
I sure hope such a thing won't be added to the article. ":-" means "an integer number" and nothing more. It isn't even specific to any individual currency. Prices in the now-obsolete Finnish markka used to be marked that way too in the early 1980s, leading me to think that ":-" was the international symbol for the markka. It didn't take me long to realise it simply meant "an integer number of markkas, with no added pennis". JIP | Talk 20:51, 31 July 2012 (UTC)
i think it would be a good idea to add ssome info on account convertibility of the krona..the currency is a floating currency and is subject to market movements unlike some of the pegged currencies like the indonesia rupiah. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 09:08, 5 January 2007 (UTC).
- I don't think the Indonesian rupiah is pegged. --ChoChoPK (球球PK) (talk | contrib) 21:18, 5 January 2007 (UTC)
- It's a deliberate choice by the Swedish government. EU would like Sweden to peg their currency to the Euro. 惑乱 分からん 12:05, 6 January 2007 (UTC)
The article says "The plural form is kronor and one krona is divided into 100 öre (singular and plural, if not preceded by a number the plural becomes ören)." I've lived in Sweden my entire life and have never seen or heard this usage. Who says "femtio ören" rather than "femtio öre"? This must be archaic. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 13:57, 2 July 2007 (UTC)
- I've removed this reference. What must have been meant is that the definite plural (the plural form for "the öre") is ören but, as we don't give the definite singular (öret), there's no need to give the definite plural.

Well, it's "100 öre", but in some cases you use "ören" (cf. "kronor och ören", "några öre(n)" and so on).

It said "if not preceded by a number the plural becomes ören" but in your example it was preceded by a number. So the example isn't valid.
What must have been meant is that the definite plural (the plural form for "the öre") is ören
And on the coin tubes that stores get from the bank it says "50-ören". Ören is right as said above. / SK
- 50 öre is an amount of money. A 50 öre coin traditionally is called "50-öring". A tube of coins should be labeled "50-öringar", but maybe some bank found that not strict style enough, since "50-öringar" is somewhat of child language, its the childrens type of money. Google gives 407 hits for "50-ören" and 1160 hits for "50-öringar". -- 184.108.40.206 (talk) 20:33, 16 January 2008 (UTC)
There reads: all jubilee and commemorative coins minted in 1897 or later are also legal tender
Well, where are they? I thought there's normally an article about those. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 15:33, 9 July 2012 (UTC)
SEK weakening 2008-2009
This section is wrong
" but from the second half 2008, the value of the krona has declined by around 20%, and had been oscillating between 10.4–11 SEK per EUR into the first half of 2009. The primary reason for its declining value lies with the Riksbank, which has significantly lowered the interest rate, and has not acted to defend the exchange rate yet.[citation "
The primary reason was the global fincancial crise which made investors sell smaller currencies like SEK and NOK in favour of major currencies, sk "safe-havens" NOK saw a similar weakening without lower rates. SEK Rates are much lower now than in 2008, still the SEK is much stronger now — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 08:52, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
Lack of images on contemporary notes
I noticed that there is only 3 out of 10 images of the current banknotes in the Swedish krona#Banknotes#Contemporary notes section. Is there any particular reason for that, or is it just that no one have uploaded any? If so, can I take a picture on them myself, add the specimen text and then upload? Or does that count as counterfeiting? --Christoffre (talk) 14:44, 16 January 2014 (UTC)
Proposed merge with Swedish enkrona
- Agree, and I think you can actually go ahead (WP:BOLD) and do it immediately, since it's just a fork that hasn't got much info. - Anonimski (talk) 10:30, 17 April 2015 (UTC)
