interesting facts:
The Norwegian commemorative coin with face value 10 kroner from 2013 commemorates the centenary of universal suffrage in Norway. On May 17, 1814, Norway received its first constitution based on the American and French, which guaranteed that the country representatives will be selected by popular vote. However, only landlords had the right to vote. It was only in 1898 when Norway extended the right to all adult males. Five years earlier, the British colony of New Zealand gave the right to vote also to women. Norwegian feminists led by Gina Krog began the fight for the same law in Norway. Short before 1913 all parties in parliament had in their electoral programs promise to introduce universal suffrage. Eventually, on June 11, 1913, the parliament equalised suffrage for men and women. Norway was the first independent country to introduce such a law.
