Norway 12 and 24 Skilling  1845 to 1848
Norway 12 and 24 Skilling 1845 to 1848

Oscar I was king of Norway and Sweden from 1844 until his death in 1859. His politics were liberal for the time, and he moved for equality between the two countries. He worked on improving the economic situation of his kingdom, and was recognized for doing so by his statesmen. Also, as a child, he had a lot of swag, as seen in the picture.

These coins are scarce and quite collectible. The 24 skilling coins look about the same as the 12 skilling coins, except for the '12' being replaced by a '24', and the larger size. The 24 skilling weighs twice that of the 12 skilling - 5.78 g as opposed to 2.89 g.

The 12 skilling has the denomination at the top, while the 24 skilling has a split legend of '24' in the left field and 'Sk' in the right field, within the wreath.

The catalogs report the following values for these coins:

These catalog values (as explained in our Important Terminology page on the top left) only apply to coins without problems, such as holes, gouges or stains.
