50 Kroner 2015 (Front: Portrait of Peter Christen Asbjørnsen (1812 - 1885) wearing spectacles (eyeglasses). The background is based on Asbjørnsen's story "A Summer's Night in Krogskogen" and also creates associations with his profession as a forester depicting spruce trees. 12-sided form printed intaglio, encircles a hexagon resembling a spider web, with a hidden "N". Willow twine*. Back: Water lillies. Dragonfly. Key. The design is based on Asbjørnsen's story "A Summer's Night in Krogskogen". Many of us have experienced the stillness of a woodland tarn and the feeling of magic as we glance into the water and see the reflections of clouds overhead, hear the buzzing of a dragonfly and perceive the fragrance of flowering water lilies. Many Norwegian artists have been inspired by this experience. Theodor Kittelsen's drawings of this motif are the most famous. The key in the lower right-hand corner is a symbol used by Asbjørnsen in the fairytale "The storehouse key on the distaff" where the farm boy cunningly exposes the arrogance and deceit of the couple whom he had thought were to be his in-laws. By extension the key may also symbolise an openness to contact with fairies and goblins. Watermark: Portrait of Peter Christen Asbjørnsen repeated vertically. Security thread: Solid, embedded 2 mm wide metallic security thread with demetalized text "NORGES BANK" repeated. Main colour: Green. Artists: Graphic designers, Sverre Morken (obverse) and Arild Yttri (reverse). Signatures: Øystein Olsen (Governor 2011–2022); Trond Eklund (Chief Cashier). Issuer: Norges Bank.
