Once again, the annual Coin Set, which was issued on 28 September 2009, has a maritime theme. Besides the six coins in circulation, the set includes a medal.
As always, the obverse of the medal is the mint mark of the Royal Danish Mint, a heart under a crown, while the reverse is a copy of a medal issued in 1732 by King Christian VI.
It depicts Neptune admiring the Naval fleet, which had been boosted and strengthened by the King. The motif of Neptune dashing across the sea in a chariot drawn by horses has been used on several Nordic medals.
The ordinary Coin Set includes the six coins in circulation after the withdrawal of the 25-øre coin in October 2008. The presentation of the coins has been adjusted accordingly so that the set looks slightly different than in previous years. The Coin Set is minted in a limited edition.
In 2009 it has not been necessary to mint coins with the denominations 50-øre, 2-krone and 5-krone for ordinary circulation, and consequently these denominations have only been minted for the Coin Sets.
