ISK information

About the Icelandic Króna (ISK)

What Is the Icelandic Króna (ISK)?

The Icelandic Króna, abbreviated as ISK and often denoted by the currency sign “kr”, is the official currency of Iceland. The Icelandic Króna is a unique currency, given that Iceland is one of the smallest countries by population to have its own currency and monetary policy. The Icelandic Króna is the sole legal tender in Iceland, and it is used for all transactions within the country.

The Iceland Krona is issued by the Central Bank of Iceland (Seðlabanki Íslands). The Central Bank is responsible for the production and distribution of the currency, as well as for managing Iceland's monetary policy and maintaining the stability of the króna.

What Is the History of ISK?

The króna's roots trace back to the Scandinavian Monetary Union, drawing its name from the Latin word 'corona' meaning 'crown'. Initially, Iceland used the Danish krone, but started issuing its own banknotes in 1885. The Icelandic króna became distinct from the Danish krone after World War I and Icelandic sovereignty in 1918. Due to high inflation, the króna was revalued in 1981, with 100 old króna (ISJ) equating to 1 new króna (ISK).

Notes and Coins of ISK

The Icelandic Króna (ISK) comprises a variety of coins and banknotes, each with distinct values and designs. Coins in circulation include denominations of 1 króna, 5 krónur, 10 krónur, 50 krónur, and 100 krónur. The Central Bank of Iceland issues notes in denominations of 500 krónur, 1000 krónur, 2000 krónur, 5000 krónur, and the highest value of 10,000 krónur.

Is ISK a Stable Currency?

The Icelandic Króna (ISK) has historically been subject to considerable volatility, reflecting the challenges of maintaining currency stability in a small, open economy. Particularly impacted by the 2008 financial crisis, the króna saw a dramatic devaluation, with the exchange rate plummeting from about 90 króna to the euro at the start of 2008 to around 340 króna to the euro by the end of the year. This instability was a direct consequence of the collapse of Iceland's banking sector, which underscored the currency's vulnerability to global economic shifts. Moreover, the króna's value against major currencies like the US Dollar has also been prone to significant fluctuations. For instance, in the first half of 2006, the exchange rate ranged between 50 and 80 króna per US Dollar, but by late 2008, it had depreciated to approximately 135 króna per Dollar. These examples highlight the challenges faced by the Central Bank of Iceland in stabilizing a currency heavily influenced by external economic factors and the dynamics of Iceland's tourism and fisheries-dependent economy.

Is ISK Pegged to EUR?

No, the Iceland Krona (ISK) is not pegged to the Euro. Iceland maintains its own independent currency and monetary policy through the Central Bank of Iceland (Seðlabanki Íslands). The value of the Icelandic króna is determined by the foreign exchange market, meaning it is subject to fluctuations based on market dynamics, rather than being fixed or pegged to the Euro or any other currency.

Will Iceland Adopt the Euro as Its Currency?

As of January 2024, Iceland had not made any definitive plans to adopt the Euro as its official currency. The consideration of adopting the Euro is intertwined with the broader issue of European Union (EU) membership, which Iceland has approached with caution. Following the severe impact of the 2008 financial crisis on the Icelandic economy and the Icelandic Króna (ISK), there was increased discussion about the potential benefits of Euro adoption, such as enhanced economic stability and reduced currency volatility. However, such a move would require Iceland to cede control over its monetary policy to the European Central Bank, a significant concession for a country that values its economic sovereignty. Additionally, public opinion in Iceland has been divided on this issue, reflecting concerns about national independence and the implications for key sectors like fisheries.
