New Banknotes of Norway Is in Circulation With a Music Video

From tomorrow, Norway's new banknotes will be in circulation.

For the first time in history, Norwegian banknotes will not feature portraits. Instead, the new notes all reflect a common theme: “The Sea”. A traditional, iconic design features on the front of the new notes, with a different maritime motif for each denomination, based on proposals from Metric Design and Terje T√łnnessen. The modern, pixellated patterns on the back of the notes are built up around a grid system based on the Beaufort wind force scale, developed from Sn√łhetta’s proposal.

“Norges Bank’s banknotes and coins are the community’s money, money we share, and for which we collectively act as guarantor. It is natural that they should tell a story that reflects us as a community of people, and the sea and our coastline are key dimensions in that story. And I hope that the new banknotes will act as an excellent business card for our country”, says Norwegian central bank Norges Bank governor √ėystein Olsen.

Norges Bank will first put the new 50-krone, 100-krone and 200-krone notes into circulation on 30 May 2017. The other denominations will be launched in 2018 and 2019.
