Encyclopedia > Liechtenstein krone

The Liechtenstein krone (plural kronen) was the currency of Liechtenstein from 1898 to 1921. The coins are rare, and the banknotes are somewhat more common. The krone was divided into 100 heller. Liechtenstein used the Austro-Hungarian krone and Austrian krone after the dissolution of the Austro-Hungarian Empire in 1918, and then switched to the Swiss franc in 1921 due to krone's instability. The Liechtenstein krone had the same amount of precious metal as the Austro-Hungarian krone or the Austrian krone. Coins came in values of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 kronen; banknotes came in 10, 20, and 50 heller as an emergency issue in 1920. 1898 (MDCCCXCVIII) was a common year starting on Saturday (see link for calendar) of the Gregorian calendar (or a common year starting on Monday of the 12-day-slower Julian calendar). ...
