Sweden 5 Kronor banknote of 1963 Sweden is a Scandinavian nation with thousands of coastal islands and inland lakes, along with vast boreal forests and glaciated mountains. Its principal cities, eastern capital Stockholm and southwestern Gothenburg and Malmo, are all coastal. Stockholm is built on 14 islands. It has more than 50 bridges, as well as the medieval old town, Gamla Stan, royal palaces and museums such as open-air Skansen.

The krona is the official currency of Sweden. In English, the currency is sometimes referred to as the Swedish crown, as krona literally means "crown" in Swedish. The Swedish krona was the ninth-most traded currency in the world by value in April 2016. One krona is subdivided into 100 Ore. The word Ore is ultimately derived from the Roman gold coin aureus, which in itself comes from the Latin word aurum, meaning gold.

Today we are looking at a 5 Kronor banknote issued in 1963. The obverse depicts the Portrait of the King Gustav VI Adolf in half profile. The reverse features the Mother Svea holding a Three Crowns (Tre Kronor) shield (Moder Svea, Mother Swea), a national emblem of Sweden.
