Beloved children’s author Astrid Lindgren will appear on Sweden’s 20 krona note.
The Riksbank, Sweden’s central bank, announced this news back in 2011. They plan to start distributing the note sometime between 2014 and 2015.
Artist Göran Österlund designed the note and included a drawing of Lindgren’s revered heroine Pippi Longstocking into the final image. BuzzFeed reports that 20 Krona can be exchanged for about $3 USD.
Last year, the United Kingdom confirmed that Pride & Prejudice author Jane Austen would appear on the £10 note starting in 2017. Her image replaces one that features famed scientist Charles Darwin.
