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 22.214.171.124 (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 126.96.36.199 (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". -- 188.8.131.52 (talk) 20:33, 16 January 2008 (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 184.108.40.206 (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)
