The Baltic Sea has marvelous archipelagos that are very important to many and have long been celebrated in Swedish Literature. In fall 2015 Sweden plans to issue two new monetary bills that will feature authors with strong links to the Baltic Sea. The 20 kronor bill will honor Astrid Lindgren, the author of Pippi Longstocking and numerous popular books about children living in a Baltic archipelago. The 50 kronor bill will honor Evert Taube, a poet and singer beloved in Sweden who writes songs about the Baltic Sea. The dedication of these new bills to authors with strong Baltic Sea connections demonstrates that ‘money talks’ about the importance of the Baltic to Swedish culture.
