New Polar coin inspired by the Sirius Patrol
The second coin in the series of three with Polar motifs was issued on 26 February and is inspired by the Sirius dog sledge patrol. The Polar coins are issued to mark the International Polar Year (IPY) 2007-2009.
The coin is designed by the sculptor Margrete Sørensen, who has been inspired by Greenland, the Sirius Sledge Patrol and the 'Canis Major' constellation with Sirius as its brightest star. The face of the coin shows a profile of the Queen.
Like the first Polar coin, which was issued in March 2007 and featured a polar bear, the new coin will be minted in three different versions: a gold coin in Greenlandic gold, a silver coin and an ordinary 10-krone coin.
His Royal Highness Crown Prince Frederik, who is the Danish patron of the International Polar Year, visited 28 January The Royal Mint and struck gold coin No 1.
The silver coin is minted in 999 ‰ fine silver (Ag) with diameter 38,0 mm, weight 31,1 g, and has a face value of 100 kroner. The silver coin will be minted in a number of maximum 35,000 and the recommended retail price is DKK 300.
