2011 Coin Set
|The annual coin set was issued 31 October 2011.|
The ordinary Coin Set includes the six coins in circulation. The coins are minted with several strokes and are thus much more clearly embossed than the ordinary coins in circulation. The Coin Set is minted in a limited edition.
The medal – Royal monogram
This set includes the medal in Nordic gold. The obverse of the medal shows The Royal Danish Mint’s mark, a heart, under a crown, while the reverse shows royal monograms as a novelty.
A monogram consists of initials referring to the first letters of a person's or a couple's first and last names. The elegantly interwoven and often mirrored initials first appeared in the late 17th century. Originally the were used only by the upper classes – royalty and nobility – but later, towards the end of the 19th century, monograms came into more widespread use.
This year's medal shows a reproduction of the monogram used on coins in the reign of King Frederik IX (1947-72).
Proof Coin Set
The proof version also includes the six coins in circulation struck in 2011 and the same medal as in the ordinary Coin Set, but minted in fine silver. Read more about the proof version here.
The recommended retail price is DKK 200 for the ordinary version and DKK 875 for the proof version.
