                Common questions about the Icelandic Króna

                The Icelandic Króna is the official currency of Iceland and is issued by the Central Bank of Iceland. Its abbreviation is ISK and its international symbol is kr.

                Up until the start of the 20th century, Iceland used Danish currency. When the Scandinavian Monetary Union was dissolved in 1918, Iceland began to issue the Icelandic Króna which is separate from the Danish Krone.

                  Króna notes come in 1kr, 5kr, 10kr, 50kr and 100kr.

                  Króna coins come in 500kr, 1,000kr, 2,000kr, 5,000kr and 10,000kr.

                    Iceland is the only country that uses the Icelandic Króna, and the currency is not pegged to any other currencies.

                      You won’t be expected to leave a tip as standard in Iceland. There isn’t a tipping culture and many restaurants and services include a small gratuity in the bill.

                      It’s very unlikely that you’ll cause offence by leaving a tip, especially in popular tourist spots like Reykjavik, but don’t be surprised if someone refuses to accept it. Saying no to a tip may be a source of pride. Carrying small Króna banknotes can make it easier to tip when the time is right and you enjoy really good service.
