The obverse of these coins feature the bust of King Gustaf V. Surrounding this portrait along the coin's beaded rim is the inscription "GUSTAF V SVERIGES KONUNG," which in Swedish means "Gustaf V, King of Sweden." Below Gustaf V's portrait is inscribed the mint date.
Gustaf V's 43 year reign lasted from 1907 until his death in 1950 at the age of 92. Gustav V is perhaps best known for his role in an event known as the "Courtyard Crisis" of 1914 in which he argued against the Liberal parliament for an increase in military spending during the lead-up to World War I. The outbreak of the Great War later that year settled the argument in his favor. Despite his official loss of any real political authority in 1919, he remained moderately influential through the end of his reign. During World War II, Gustaf V entreated Adolph Hitler to curb his persecution of the Jews and also helped to maintain Swedish neutrality throughout the war by controversially advocating for allowing Germany to move troops and arms through Swedish territory during the invasion of Russia in 1941.
The coin's reverse contains the royal arms of the Kingdom of Sweden, which consists of a quartered shield depicting three crowns and a lion. The shield is topped with a crown and surrounded by the chain of the Swedish Royal Order of the Seraphim, a knightly order to which the Swedish royalty belongs. Surrounding the national arms is an inscription reading "MED FOLKET FOR FOSTERLANDET," which means "By the People for the Fatherland." At the coin's bottom is an inscription marking the coin's denomination of 1 krona.
