Smedjebacken Municipality (Smedjebackens kommun) is a municipality in Dalarna County in central Sweden. Its seat is located in the town of Smedjebacken.

The present municipality was formed in two steps during the last nation-wide local government reform in Sweden. In 1967 the market town (köping) Smedjebacken was reunited with Norrbärke from which it had been detached in 1918. In 1974 Söderbärke was added.

The municipality borders to eight other municipalities.


The coat of arms depicts a sailing ship and cogwheels. These are intended to show the old and new industry sectors of the municipality. It was first granted 1947, but has undergone a few redesigns since. In Smedjebacken there is a skiingclub which has a live webcamera from the slope. You can also find it on Google Earth and YouTube. Also close by is Lernbo where the biggest sportsfishing retailer in Europe has its headquarters.
