The table shows the number of coins delivered to Norges Bank.
1) The decline in 2008 is primarily due to changes in the circulation pattern. Devlopments for the 20-krone coin were also influenced by the ban on slot machines which came into force on 1 July 2007.
2) From 1 May 2012 the 50-øre coin was no longer legal tender. After this date, Norges Bank is obliged to redeem 50-øre coins for a further 10 years, i.e. until 1 May 2022.
