15 is not Sweden. I would go for Denmark or actually the flipside of 1, hence Norway and krone again.
18 is Korea and won.
19 is Iceland and kronur.

15. After a lot of googling, I'll say it is Norway Krone. The original puzzle maker however referred it as Swedish Krone, which is not correct. So I'll give one point to you for Norway (krone point has already gone to Shayne Parkinson). Also with a heavy heart, I am reducing one point from Shayne's account.
18. Both correct - +2
19. Again both correct, +2. (However, the currency was referred as Krona in the original puzzle.)

Nordic currencies outside Finland is in English rendered as crown, Danish and Norwegian spelling is krone and Swedish spelling is krona, in Icelandic, more closely related to original Norse it was kronur but after the financial meltdown it is possible that they have changed the name to krona.
