The first to be introduced were the 1 Krona and 2 Krona were introduced. In 1954, 1955 and 1971, the five-krona silver coins were produced; with similar designs as the contemporary 1- and 2 silver Krona. The other denominations were the 10 and 20 Krona. All the old Krona coins became invalid since 2017 and therefore cannot be used for payments nor can they be exchanged for legal tender in any bank and are instead instructed to be recycled as a metal.

The commonly used Krona is the 1 Krona. For the coin minted in 1910 to 1942, it has a diameter of 25 millimeters and a thickness of 1 millimeter. It has a gross weight of 7.5 grams with a silver purity of 80.0%. The obverse of the coin features the effigy of King Gustav V facing the left side. Gustav V was the King of Sweden from 1907 to 1950. The coin has the text “GUSTAF V SVERIGES KONUNG” is inscribed along the rim of the coin starting from the bottom-left to the bottom-left. At the bottom of the coin is the year of coinage. For example, “1924” for the 1924 coin. The date is between two mint marks of the minting company.
