The Liechtenstein krone was the currency of Liechtenstein from 1898 to 1921. It was divided into 100 heller. In 1918, Liechtenstein used the Austro-Hungarian krone and Austrian krone after the Austro-Hungarian Empire had ended, but switched to the frank due to the krone's instability.


During 1920, Liechtenstein printed an issue of notgeld paper money. These were denominated in 10, 20, and 50 heller. Today, these notes are somewhat common among collectors of paper money. They were issued by the National Bank of Liechtenstein.


The coins of the Liechtenstein krone are considered rarer than their paper counterparts. They used the same amount of precious metal as the Austro-Hungarian krone or the Austrian krone. These coins were denominated in 1, 2, 5, 10, and 20 krone. The 1, 2, and 5 krone coins were composed of .835 fine silver, while the 10 and 20 krone coins were composed of .900 fine gold. On the obverse of each coin was an image of Prince Johann II, and on the reverses was the coat of arms of Liechtenstein. These were produced at the Austrian Mint.
