1996 Norway Krone

Do you have a coin from Norway and want to know its value? Leave a comment

Congratulations to Norway's Alexander Kristoff for his cycling men's road race bronze medal victory.

Both in his honor and as a coincidence I am showing off this Norwegian coin. It is a simple Krone design-wise, nothing special or unique sticks out.

On the obverse is HARALD V ALT FOR NORGE means HARALD V ALL FOR NORWAY. Designers initial IR under the head. The crossed hammers are from the Kongsberg Mint. The grease/gum is on the surface and probably can easily and safely come off, I just have not done it yet.

On the reverse is a crown and 1 KRONE 1996 and the mintmaster's privy mark.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Krone / Norway
Year: 1996
Mintage: 20,844,000
Metal: Copper-Nickel
Value: $0.20 in Very-Fine (about $0.17 in exchange value)
