1976 saw the introduction of the first coin — a 1 krona coin — bearing The King's portrait. The portrait was produced by Lars Englund. When the 10 kronor coin was launched in 1991, The King's portrait was created by Marita Norén. In 2000, Bo Thorén produced The King's portrait on the 1 krona coin issued to commemorate the turn of the millennium. The following year, artist Ernst Nordin created a portrait of The King for the new 1 krona and 10 kronor coins.
