If you cannot find an exchange rate

The Riksbank publishes the most common exchange rates reported by the Swedish banks to Nasdaq Stockholm AB. If you want information about an exchange rate that is not in the Riksbank's database, you can contact your commercial bank or a bureau de change for further information, or for example check SEB Group’s website.  

The currencies are presented in units of 1 or 100

For certain currencies in the Riksbank's database, the rate is expressed in Swedish kronor against 1 unit of the foreign currency, and for certain currencies the rate is expressed in Swedish kronor against 100 units of the foreign currency. The reason for this is simply that it is historical practice, and when exchange rates are managed in the Riksbank's database this practice is still applied. 

Currency codes

You can find a list of currency codes for the currencies published on the Riksbank's website at List of currency codes.

A beta version of this new REST API is now available. The Riksbank’s old SOAP API will be phased out.
