Swedish Krona

The currency of Sweden. It was introduced in 1873 when it replaced the former currency at the beginning of the Scandinavian Monetary Union. After World War I, the Monetary Union ended, but the Swedish government kept the krona as its own currency. In 1995, Sweden committed to joining the eurozone at an indeterminate date. However, a 2003 referendum rejected this course of action.
