@ Panky, Yes they are, as both words can appear on a coin. Krona is singular (1 Krona), Kronor is plural (5 Kronor).

'Krona' is also the singular for 'Kronur' as well.The word 'Kronur' is also found in Faeroese,as the Faeroe Islands also issue their own notes,which are legal tender in Denmark as well as the Faeroe Islands.
