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.

Coins in circulation for 2011
Only 2-krone, 10-krone and 20-krone coins are produced in 2011 for general circulation.

Many collectors have informed us that it can be very difficult to get hold of this year’s circulating coins. As requested by the collectors, we therefore offer a small bag containing 1 pcs. of 2-krone, 1 pcs. of 10-krone coin and 1 pcs. of 20-krone coin for circulation struck in 2011. These bags were only available in the period 31 October to 31 December 2011, at a price of DKK 50 including VAT.
