Fairy tale coins

In 2005, Danmarks Nationalbank issued the first in a series of coins with motifs from Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tales. The fifth and final fairy tale coin inspired by the Nightingale was issued on 25 October 2007.

The motifs have been chosen to illustrate different aspects of Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tales.

Profile of the Queen
The face of the fairy tale coins shows a profile of the Queen by the sculptor, professor Mogens Møller. All fairy tale coins are legal tender and can be exchanged at Danmarks Nationalbank at face value.
