There are two mintage types: The first depicts a young Oscar II, minted from 1877 to 1899 and the second a mature Oscar II, minted from 1900-1902. Oscar II was a man of culture and learning -- an able musician and writer. His reign was noted for Sweden's industrialization. This was also the period when approximately 1.5 million Swedes emigrated to the United States and settled largely in the American MidWest.
