Christiansborg Palace Tower


Picture of Christiansborg Palace Tower decorated with flags is the motif of the third thematic coin

On 20 November 2003 the third tower coin was put into circulation. The motif is Christiansborg Palace Tower. The Palace was built after a fire had destroyed its predecessor in 1884.

The characteristic tower with three crowns and a weather-vane is a later addition. Christiansborg Palace houses the Danish Parliament, the Folketing, as well as the Royal Reception Rooms, the Danish Supreme Court and the Prime Minister's Office.

The motif was designed by the Faroese sculptor Hans Pauli Olsen. He comments on his work on the coin: "It has been an exciting and challenging task to design the coin. After many remodelling I am proud to present the result. This is the first time I have made something that so many people will hold in their hands."
