The latest on the US dollar to Icelandic króna rates
The lowdown on the Icelandic króna
Iceland used the Danish Rigsdaler and then the Danish Krone while it was part of Denmark. In 1885, the country began issuing its own banknotes, and in 1918, it gained autonomy from Denmark. As a result, the Icelandic króna was established as the country's official currency.
After a period of economic hyperinflation, new notes and coins were issued in 1981 when the currency was revalued.
In 2008, the country’s banking sector collapsed and the value of the Króna fell sharply. Although the Central Bank tried to stabilize it by pegging it against the euro, the Króna continued to fall. It started strengthening against the dollar from 2015 onwards.
Historic US dollar to Icelandic króna rates
