The Ram


Vædderen (the Ram) was the motif of the first coin in a new series of coins with ships as their common theme.

25 April 2007, Danmarks Nationalbank issued the first coin in a new series of 20-krone coins with ships as their common theme. To mark the return of the Galathea 3 Expedition to Denmark, the first coin in the series has the surveillance vessel Vædderen (the Ram) as its motif.

Vædderen has been circumnavigating the Earth on the third Galathea Expedition since August 2006 and arrived to the dock at Langelinie in the Port of Copenhagen on 25 April 2007. Galathea 3 is the largest Danish research expedition in more than 50 years and its objective is to promote Danish research.
