This coin is a part of a series of three, quite emitted in 1930. They are considered, in Iceland, as "semi-official".
Indeed, it's not the government which asked for the strike of these coins, it's a decision of a parliamentary committee, completely official. That is why, after hesitation, these 3 coins were classified under Iceland and not directly in the Tokens section. This coin is also listed in the Schön catalogue.
According to the history, the coins of 2, 5 and 10 Krónur, only the 2 Krónur was able to serve sometimes as means of payment.
They were struck by the Muldenhütten Mint (Saxon State Mint) in Freiberg, Germany.
