Norwegian Krone

The currency of Norway. Originally issued in 1875 when Norway joined the (now defunct) Scandinavian Monetary Union, it was a gold standard currency, off and on, until it became pegged to the British pound in 1931. After World War II, it maintained its peg to the pound, which was itself pegged to the U.S. dollar. It was later pegged to the dollar directly. In 1992, it became a floating currency.
