Valid coins
The General Council of the Riksbank decides on the design and appearance of the coins issued by the Riksbank.

The reverse of the coin (the denomination side) carries two small letters.
 
The letter on the left is :
E for Eskilstuna where the mint is located. 
For coins minted up to the end of 2007  
S for Stockholm where the Riksbank is located.
For coins minted from 2008 onwards
The letter on the right has a number of meanings depending on when the coin was struck:
coins minted prior to 1987 carry the first letter of the mint manager’s surname
coins minted between 1987 and 2005 carry the first letter of the Riksbank Governor’s surname
coins minted as of 2006 carry the first letter of the Riksbank Governor’s first name and surname
Older versions of the 1-krona, 5-krona and 10-krona coins, commemorative and jubilee coins minted since 1897 as well as the 2-krona coin are also legal tender.
