Swedish currency

Swedish coinage ‘Öre’ & ‘Krona’ (100 öre =1 krona). The lowest denomination coin is now 1 krona, though prices still can show an amount in öre. When you buy something, the total sum will be rounded up or down to the nearest 1 krona. Coins are available in 1, 2, 5, and 10 denominations. Notes are available in 20, 50, 100, 200, 500 and 1000 denominations. Symbols for the krona are ”SEK”, ”Kr” and ”:-”
