Kungliga Myntkabinettet

Museum in Gamla Stan

Across the plaza from the Royal Palace, Kungliga Myntkabinettet – the National Museum of Economy – gleams with a priceless collection of currency spanning 2600 years. Treasures include Viking silver and the world’s oldest coin (from 625 BC), largest coin (a Swedish copper plate weighing 19.7kg) and first banknote (issued in Sweden in 1661).
