The króna (plural krónur) (kr orISK) is the currency of Iceland. The word króna, meaning “crown”, is related to those of other Nordic currencies (such as the Danish krone, Swedish krona, and Norwegian krone) and to the Latin word corona (“crown”). So how many USD do you think 1000kr is actually worth?
