To commemorate the 70th birthday of Queen Margrethe II in April 2010, a special coin was minted, with a new portrait of the Queen created by the sculptor Lis Nogel.
It has been decided to use this portrait on 10-krone and 20-krone coins in future. At the same time, the reverse of the coins will be altered. In the new design, drawn by Ronny Andersen, Royal Heraldic Painter, the three Danish lions (leopards) will be depicted in a traditional coat of arms under the Danish crown. The denomination will be stated below the coat of arms.
This design bears some resemblance to the 1-krone and 2-krone coins minted under King Frederik IX in the period 1947-59.
However, the coat of arms has become more prominent as its background has been given a distinctive structure.
The newly designed 10-krone and 20-krone coins can be found in the 2011 Coin Set for Children and will also be included in the ordinary 2011 Coin Set, which will be issued in the autumn.
To mark the new design of the two coins, the Royal Danish Mint is offering collectors special editions of the coins.
The dies used for these coins have first been sand blast and then glass blast. Using this technique gives the coins a uniform, silky smooth surface corresponding to the engraved elements on proof versions of coins.
The coins have been minted in a special medal minting press using several strokes to achieve a high quality.
The collector’s editions of the new 10-krone and 20-krone coins will be sold as sets at a price of DKK 125 per set, including VAT.
The coins will be supplied in plastic capsules in a small plastic bag, which will also contain a brief description of the various 10-krone and 20-krone coins in the current coin series.
Purchase the coinsfrom 15 February 2011
The special editions of the new 10-krone and 20-krone coins can be ordered in the period 15-22 February 2011.
