2011 Coin Set proof version
|The proof version was issued 31 October 2011.|
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.
The coins in the proof set are minted using at least three strokes with extremely wellpolished dies on specially treated coin blanks in order to ensure their very fine quality. The proof 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).
The recommended retail price is DKK 200 for the ordinary version and DKK 875 for the proof version.
