Icelandic Gold Coins Index Page - Island
Settled by Norwegian and Celtic (Scottish and Irish) immigrants during the late 9th and 10th centuries A.D., Iceland boasts the world's oldest functioning legislative assembly, the Althing, established in 930. Independent for over 300 years, Iceland was subsequently ruled by Norway and Denmark. Fallout from the Askja volcano of 1875 devastated the Icelandic economy and caused widespread famine. Over the next quarter century, 20% of the island's population emigrated, mostly to Canada and the US. Limited home rule from Denmark was granted in 1874 and complete independence attained in 1944. Literacy, longevity, income, and social cohesion are first-rate by world standards.

Icelandic Gold Coins
Iceland issued very few gold coins. Indeed it seems to have done so on only three occasions, which range from 1961 to 2000.
We show a 1974 proof 10,000 kronur, issued to celebrate Iceland's 1,100th anniversary, 874 to 1974.
