The Royal Yacht Dannebrog


The Royal Yacht Dannebrog as the motif on the common coin with ships.

On 22 September 2008 Danmarks Nationalbank issues a new 20-krone coin with the Royal Yacht Dannebrog as its motif. This is the fifth coin with a ship as motif.
The coin was presented to Her Majesty the Queen on board the Royal Yacht in Copenhagen on 18 September 2008. For further information about the yacht, see www.kongehuset.dk.

The Royal Yacht Dannebrog was built in 1931-1932 at the Naval Dockyard in Copenhagen and was launched in 1932. The yacht serves as the official and private residence of Her Majesty the Queen, His Royal Highness the Prince Consort and members of the Royal Family when they are on summer cruises in Danish waters and on official visits over-seas.

The motif of the new ship coin was designed by medallist Henrik Wiberg, The Royal Mint, who has created a very attractive relief of the beautiful yacht. The relief appears both vivid and deep, although the actual depth is only around 2 mm. Henrik Wiberg's statement on his work with the coin can be found at the website.

The ship coin with its royal motif will be issued in an edition of 1.2 million coins in ordinary circulation.

The motif for the coin has been designed by the sculptor Henrik Wiberg.

Proof version
In addition, a very limited number of collector's coins, only 1.500 will be minted in the very fine proof quality.

500-krone in silver
Furthermore, the ship coin will also be issued as a 500-krone coin in fine silver in a edition of maximum 60.000 coins. Besides the Royal Yacht, this edition includes the monogram of Her Majesty Queen Margrethe.

The coins can be purchased form banks, Danmarks Nationalbank and via the website of The Royal Mint.
