Iceland 2000 Krónur
The króna is the official currency of Iceland since 1918 when the country separated the currency from the Danish krone. The name króna is derived from the Latin word “crown” and the official currency symbol: kr. In 1921, the “Ríkissjóður Íslands” (The Treasury of Iceland) took over the paper money production and introduced the first banknotes in denominations of 1, 5, 10, and 50 krónur. In 1961, the Seðlabanki Íslands (the Central Bank of Iceland) was established as the official central bank of Iceland and introduced notes in denominations of 10, 25, 100, and 500 krónur. After a monetary reform carried out in 1981 due to the high inflation suffered by the currency, the króna was revalued. New notes were put into circulation in denominations of 10, 50, 100, and 500 krónur, followed by 1000 krónur in 1984, 5000 krónur in 1986, 2000 krónur in 1987, and a 10,000 krónur note in 2013. In 2001 a new series was introduced with substantial design changes.
The 2000 Icelandic krónur note front design features the portrait of Jóhannes Sveinsson Kjarval (1885 – 1972), who was an Icelandic painter considered one of the most important artists of Iceland, on a background of a stylized part of Kjarval’s painting; Outside and inside. The reverse of the note illustrates three of Karl’s drawings; Flugþrá (Leda og the swan), Kona og blóm, and Yearning for Flight (Leda and the Swan). The lettering on the note is presented in the Icelandic language. This note is part of the 1986 series, and its color is purple on a multicolor underprint.
