ForexDictionary explains Swedish Krona (SEK)

The krona was on a gold standard until World War I. Since then, the stability in the krona is largely thanks to the fiscal prudence with which Sweden has been governed. The krona is one of the most-traded European currencies and remains one of the few holdouts against adopting the euro.
