Norway 50 Ore, 1 Krone, 2 Kroner  1874 to 1904
Norway 50 Ore, 1 Krone, 2 Kroner 1874 to 1904

Every once in a while you come across a series of coins which is truly valuable due to its scarcity. These old coins from Norway qualify as such a series. If your coin is genuine, Marilyn, it is probably worth several hundred dollars.

DO NOT CLEAN YOUR COIN. CLEANING RUINS VALUE.

The coin in our picture comes from respected eBay seller anakin7364 and it is currently at auction with bids well above $100 US dollars.

The fact that your coin is in almost uncirculated condition is both exciting and troubling. Excitement comes from the fact that you have a rare coin. Trouble comes from the fact that it may be counterfeit. If your coin is geniune, the values below apply. If not, your coin has no value. You can write to CoinQuest and we may be able to determined if your coin is real or fake from a picture you send.

Here are very approximate catalog values for coins in these three series. Actual values will vary.

50 ORE (1/2 KRONE)
worn: $30 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated (like our picture): $70
well preserved: $120
fully uncirculated: $250
coins dated 1880, 1885, and 1904: multiply these values by three

1 KRONE
worn: $40 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated (like our picture): $100
well preserved: $200
fully uncirculated: $350
coins dated 1875, 1879, 1881, 1882, and 1888: multiply these values by three
coins dated 1878: multiply these values by ten

2 KRONER
worn: $50 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated (like our picture): $100
well preserved: $300
fully uncirculated: $600
coins dated 1878, 1892, 1897, and 1898: multiply these values by three
coins dated 1885, 1887, and 1888: multiply these values by five

For valuable coins like these, CoinQuest values are very approximate. If you have a coin valued over $200, you should have it authenticated, graded, and encapsulated by PCGS, NGC, ICG, or ANACS (look them up on the Internet). Do not use other services.

All CoinQuest values are catalog values. Please be sure to covert these catalog values to actual buy and sell values using the information on our Important Terminology page.
