Sweden 1 Krona and 2 Kronor 1875 to 1907
Nice coin. And I'm glad you evaluate it as 'attractive' in eye appeal (like our picture). Many of these you see are worn, dark, and damaged.
The 1 krona and 2 kronor coins look very similar except, of course, for the denomination on the reverse. Value-wise, the 2 kronor are a little bit more valuable, but none of these coins are shabby when it comes to value.
Here are catalog values for these coins. There are variations date-to-date explained below. These are average values and very approximate:
worn: $12 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $45
well preserved: $180
fully uncirculated: $400
worn: $18 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $80
well preserved: $250
fully uncirculated: $700
These are catalog values. Be sure you understand that catalog values are not actual values. Our Important Terminology page describes this in detail.
In general the older dates are worth quite a bit more than the newer dates. There are a few *better dates* which catalog as follows in average circulated condition:
1 KRONA: 1879, 1887, 1888: $120 average circulated
2 KRONOR: 1876, 1878, 1903: $120 average circulated
Further, like many coins, there are special variation and minting details which create more or less value for collectors. These subtle varieties are outside of CoinQuest's ken, but you can do a little research of your own with a good coin catalog. But watch out! You might be bitten by the collector bug and then you'll have an enjoyable hobby for life!
