Obverse: Scholar Arngrímur Jónsson the Learned (1568-1648). The border is based on a carved bed-board at the National Museum and the written denomination is in a typeface matching that in Arngrímur Jónsson's tract on Iceland, Crymogaea, 1609.

First put into circulation in 1981, this note is no longer circulated by the Central Bank, although it is still valid legal tender. In 1984 a 10 krónur coin was issued to replace the note.
