Text Box: 	The Faroese króna (plur: krónur) is the currency of the Faroe Islands. It is issued by the Danish National Bank. It is not an independent currency, but in fact standard Danish bank notes printed with specific Faroese motifs, mostly animals and natural scenery. Between 2001 and 2005, a new bank note series with new security features was introduced to replace older notes. The islands use Danish coins like Denmark and Greenland.
	Danish kroner are exchanged to Faroese krónur and vice versa by the National Bank of Denmark free of charge. While Danish bank notes are not formally legal tender in the Faroes, they are accepted there in most situations. In Denmark proper, existence of the Faroese króna is poorly known, particularly the fact that it has the same value as the Danish krone and can be exchanged by any Danish bank without charge, and so many Danish stores will not accept Faroese notes.
