    <p>
    Here are pictures of the last 50 - &oslash;re ever minted. Pay attention to the &quot; 11 &quot; , both digits are reversed. Most of the 50 &oslash;re of 2011 are minted with this die- error. It took several month before someone noticed... Anyway correct dies must have been used right from the beginning aswell. All coinsets are showing the date the right way and coinsets here in Norway are usually minted before the ordinary production starts.</p>

    1 Krone 1877 falsk 001 - Kopi.JPG 1 Krone 1877 falsk 002 - Kopi.JPG

    The 1 krona ripley has posted is swedish. This is a norwegian 1 krone of that periode. or, let us rather say,it is a contemporay fake of a norwegoan 1 krone, made by a swedish optican, who is regarded a master - forger. After having served 5 years of hard labour for his deeds, he emigrated to the US.
    Best regrads, Mynter

    Hehe. But how can one tell that it's a forgery?

    As I said; he was a true master. The look is perfect, but the weight is incorrect, as the forgeries do not consist of silver.

    It also reads NOREG instead of NORGE. Is it meant to?

    Good observation.
    Norway has two different versions of the written language; «Norwegian» and «New Norwegian». To make this arrangement even more confusing, the «new» Norwegian is the oldest version of the language, as it is built on dialects collected by Ivar Aasen during the end of the 19th century; the actual Norwegian language, while «Norwegian» as a written language is based on Danish, deriving from Norwegian people educated in Copenhagen during the long Danish reign over Norway 1380-1814, also called the 400 year night.
    Originally the languages were called «Reigns tongue» and «Lands tongue», where the lands tongue was the words, grammar and expressions collected by Aasen. In lands tongue, Norway is «Noreg», while in reigns tongue it is «Norge». «Noreg» derives from the Norse word «Norðweg», found in a book from the time of King Alfred the Great of Wessex in 880 AD. It derives from «where the Northerners are from».

    Contrary to what you would expect from a rather patriotic people, Lands tongue is quite unpopular, and there is constant lobbying to get it out of the educational system. The reason for this, is that the people living in eastern Norway are too intellectually lazy to learn to understand what people are saying in the rest of their country. Living in western Norway, I would love to see the underproductive and tax-sponsored Oslo region returned to Denmark or Sweden or whoever they associate with, and establish a republic of hardy westerners, thrifty mid Norwegians and rough fishermen from the North. It is however more realistic that the great project of Ivar Aasen; new Norwegian, will fall by the wayside and we will develop a language which is a fusion of Danish and English. This in itself makes the coin collectible.

    This is a nice but common comemmorative, depicting the first known Norwegian coin; the Olav Tryggvarson penny:

    I think this is a nice and affordable type to collect, the first silver kroner of the new independent nation, issued between 1908-17:

    Nice first year issue of a coin with double value 10 øre/3 skilling. The reason for having this double value must have been to guide the people into the new denomination. :)

    Yes, a nice little transitional piece. Would that it was the 50 ore / 15 sk. :joyful:

    Yes. The Oscar II 50 øre is a neat little silver coin indeed.
    The big brother is also nice.
