The króna is the official currency of Iceland since 1918 when the country separated the currency from the Danish krone.  The name króna is derived from the Latin word “crown” and the official currency symbol: kr. In 1921, the “Ríkissjóður Íslands” (The Treasury of Iceland) took over the paper money production and introduced the first banknotes in denominations of 1, 5, 10, and 50 krónur. In 1961, the Seðlabanki Íslands (the Central Bank of Iceland) was established as the official central bank of Iceland and introduced notes in denominations of 10, 25, 100, and 500 krónur. After a monetary reform carried out in 1981 due to the high inflation suffered by the currency, the króna was revalued. New notes were put into circulation in denominations of 10, 50, 100, and 500 krónur, followed by 1000 krónur in 1984, 5000 krónur in 1986, 2000 krónur in 1987, and a 10,000 krónur note in 2013. In 2001 a new series was introduced with substantial design changes.

The 10000 Icelandic krónur note front design features the portrait of Jónas Hallgrímsson (1807 –1845), who was an Icelandic poet, author, naturalist, and founding member of the Icelandic magazine Fjölnir, which made its first publication in 1835, Copenhagen, on a background with outlines of Háafjall and Hraundrangi mountains which are formed from words in the Icelandic language used by Jónas, a stylized design of a flower, which is used on the cover of the newspaper “Fjölnir,” a fragment of the poem ” Ferðalok “(The End of the Journey) handwritten by Jónas and topographical outline of Skjaldbreiður mountain. The reverse of the note illustrates a European golden plover and its chick, on a background with Hallgrímsson’s poem “Skjaldbreiður Mountain,” a topographical outline of Skjaldbreiður mountain, a fragment of Jónas’ handwritten poem “Fjallið Skjaldbreiður” and a scallop shell on the side lower right. The lettering on the note is presented in the Icelandic language. This note is part of the 2001 – 2009 series, and its color is blue on a multicolor underprint.
