The Schwanian krone (officially known as Cignolaga krono in Esperanto and klon Svanalakänik in Volapük) was the currency of the defunct Free Republic of Schwanensee. It was pegged to the obsolete Deutsche Mark (approximately 1/2 Euro), which, despite its obsolete status, was still regarded as legal tender within Schwanian territory and kept as foreign exchange reserves of the country. The central bank of Schwanensee, KosmoBanko de Cignolago, was responsible for exchanging the Schwanian Krone from and into any of the circulating currency. Just before the dissolution of Schwanensee in 2019, banknotes in circulation were 5, 10, and 50-Kronoj (rarely used) from the fifth series, accompanied by four coins from the third series valued 10, 25, 50-Oeroj (made of plastic), and 1-Krono (made of stainless steel).


The Kronen or Kronoj were first proposed on 31/08/2011, when the previous Prime Minister intended to introduce a new series of currency, since the old Schwanian Kosmosmark was undergoing hyperinflation and therefore not suitable for circulation any more. The new currency proposal was written on 01/09/2011, which was soon ratified by the parliament. The last note of the first series of banknotes was designed on 02/09/2011, and the second modified series was designed on 07/02/2012. These banknotes have already become invalid since the current fifth series was issued. For all previous series, there were also two types of banknotes issued: one for general circulation and the other solely for collection. Circulating notes are monochrome, while the ones for collection purposes are multicolored (not issued any more). Schwanensee also issued as small as 1/1000-Øre notes, but they have been withdrawn due to inflation.
