1 and 2 kroner notes

1- and 2-kroner notes were issued 1917-1925 and 1940-1950. A typical trait of times of crisis is that silver coinage is hoarded, beacuse silver has an intrinsic value that paper has not, and is thus better protected against the inflationary practices of governments.

During the Second World War the circulating coinage wasn't silver based, but both copper and nickel, used for coinage, had more strategic uses.

Popular humour nicknamed these notes bolcheviks and red guards, with two bolcheviks to a red guard.
