In 1921, the Rikissjod Islands began issuing paper money, with notes for 1, 5, 10 and 50 krónur.

In 1929, another bank, the Landsbanki Íslands took over issuance of denominations of 5 krónur and above, with the Rikissjod Islands continuing to issue 1 króna notes until 1947. The Landsbanki Íslands introduced 500 króna notes in 1935, followed by 25and 1000 króna notes in 1957.

In 1961, the Seðlabanki Íslands became the central bank of Iceland and started issuing paper money, in denominations of 10, 25, 100, 500, 1000 and 5000 krónur
