The Riksbank 350 years old
In 1668, the Riksdag, Sweden's parliament, decided to found Riksens Ständers Bank (the Estates of the Realm Bank), which in 1867 received the name Sveriges Riksbank. The Riksbank is thus the world's oldest central bank. In 2018, the Riksbank will celebrate its 350th anniversary.
In 2018, we will be drawing attention to the important role the bank has played over 350 years. We will do this through activities aimed at a broader public, with the aim of disseminating knowledge about the Riksbank's role in the Swedish economy and the important future issues in the central bank field.Our celebrations
