The Three Crowns, the lesser coat of arms, divides value in letters at base of lower crown. Above the crowns there is the value in number and below the mint mark of Sveriges Riksbank, Stockholm (crowned St. Eric).

Three Crowns (Swedish: Tre Kronor) is a national emblem of Sweden, present in the coat of arms of Sweden, and composed of three yellow or gilded coronets ordered two above and one below, placed on a blue background. The emblem is often used as a symbol of official State authority by the Monarchy, the Riksdag, the Government of Sweden and by Swedish embassies around the world, but also appears in other less formal contexts, such as the Sweden men's national ice hockey team, who wear the symbol on their sweaters and hence are called "Three Crowns".
