Anyone know what this coin is?

So I was going through a box of pennies, and I found this coin, I've tried to look it up but couldn't find anything. If anyone knows, I would love to know what country this coin is from. It depicts 2 crowns on top of 1 crown on its obverse. And on the reverse it depicts a 50. The 5 and the 0 overlap one another. The coin has a flip over orientation as well. Any information or further questions feel free to ask.

The coin is a Sweden 50 ore (pronounced like "uh-reh";  the o has double-dots or "umlaut" over it). The ore is like the US cent with 100 to the krona. One Swedish krona is worth about 13 cents US. So, this is like 6 or 7 cents on the streets of Stockholm.   


You can google for images and find collector sites with more information.

If you ever have a foreign coin that you found and can't identify you can always look into a app for your phone call coinascope, you simply take a picture of the coin with the app and it will find matches and tell you what the coin is and where it is from.

Coinoscope is a great useful tool. You can also use numista to find information about the coins and add coins to your numista account.
