|The Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic
Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel
The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences is responsible for selecting the Nobel Laureates in Economics.
The upper half of the face of the medal depicts Alfred Nobel, but in a pose different from the one appearing on the other Nobel Prize Medals. Around the upper edge are the words Sveriges Riksbank till Alfred Nobels Minne 1968 ("The Sveriges Riksbank, in memory of Alfred Nobel, 1968). The lower half displays the bank's crossed horns of plenty. The obverse shows the North Star emblem of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, dating from 1815, with the words "Kungliga Vetenskaps Akademien" (The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences) around the edge. The medal was designed by Gunvor Svensson-Lundqvist.
