Danish Kroner

The Danish Krone (Crown) coin was introduced in 1619, and later reintroduced in 1875 as the official currency of Denmark. Kroner coins typically feature a portrait of a monarch and have been minted in Denmark since the 1600’s.

The Royal Danish Mint has existed since the early 1500’s, at which time it acted as a subcontractor. In 1739 it became an independent institution in Copenhagen, and part of Denmark’s Ministry of Finance in 1849 when absolute monarchy was abolished.

The mint has been located in several different areas of Copenhagen and was the sole company legally allowed to produce Danish coins. In October 2014 the Danish Central Bank announced that the Royal Danish Mint would cease to produce coins due to rising costs and anticipated lower demand. In May 2016, the Mint of Finland was chosen as the new producer of Danish coinage.
