Money in Iceland

Iceland has a well-developed system of cashless payments, cards can pay almost everywhere, except for city buses. Often, even the shopkeepers at holiday fairs carry a terminal. As far as I know, even among all the traders at the flea market in Reykjavik Kolaport terminal not only has the seller of bakery products. 

But still, very helpful to have some cash in case of different force majeure, or if there is a need not to shine the cost of the card. Consider closely Icelandic coins and notes, which are currently in circulation.
