Valid coins
The Riksbank is responsible for supplying Sweden with coins, but not necessarily by manufacturing coins itself. Coins are still manufactured in Eskilstuna under the company name Nordic Coin AB, Svenska Myntverket, which is a subsidiary of the Finnish Mint, Rahapaja Oy.
 
Coins have a much longer lifespan than banknotes and are also in circulation much longer. They remain in circulation, as change or in piggy-banks, cars, pockets, or at the bottom of handbags.
 
The denomination side of the coin carries two small letters. The letter on the left is for the place the coin was minted (E for Eskilstuna, where the mint is located). The letter on the right is the first letter of the Riksbank Governor’s surname. Coins minted prior to 1987 carry the first letter of the mint manager’s surname.
 
The General Council of the Riksbank decide on the design and appearance of the coins issued by the Riksbank.
 
Older versions of coins in the denominations 50 öre, 1 krona, 2 kronor, 5 kronor, 10 kronor and all jubilee and commemorative coins are legal tender.
