Norwegian banknotes are circulated, in addition to Norwegian coins, with a denomination of Norwegian kroner, as standard units of currency in Norway.

History

From 1877, after the establishment of the Scandinavian Monetary Union, and until present day, Norwegian banknotes have included 1000 kroner, 500 kroner, 100 kroner, and 50 kroner notes. In 1994 the first 200 kroner note was issued. 5 kroner and 10 kroner notes were also used from 1877, but these were replaced by coins in 1963 and 1983 respectively.

During World War I and World War II and war aftermaths of 1917–1925 and 1940–1950 there was shortage of change, and so 1 krone and 2 kroner notes were printed as "coin notes". The WWI edition was rendered invalid in 1926, whereas the WWII edition was technically valid until 1999. For more details see the section on historical Norwegian banknotes below.
