mint and privy marks:
Except for the period 2002-2013 on Danish coinage next to the heart - the mint mark of the Royal Mint of Denmark, also initials of mint's directors (usually before the heart) and of main engravers (usually after the heart) were placed. Thus the following combinations are found on the modern coins: N♥S, C♥S, S♥S, S♥B, B♥B, R♥B, NR♥JP, LG♥JP, JS♥HW. Let's meet the people standing behind these initials:

interesting facts:
In the first half of 1973 the Royal Mint struck 100,000 sets of coins with face values 1 and 2 øre to commemorate the fact of withdrawing these from circulation. On the contrary to the original coins, these were struck in bronze. Each set contained four coins of 1 øre (years 1960, 1962, 1963 and 1964) as well as six coins of 2 øre (years 1960, 1962, 1963, 1964, 1965 and 1966);

The official monogram of King Frederik IX of Denmark contains the crown of King Christian V. This regal attribute graced the heads of all the Danish kings from 1670 until 1840. Today the crown is held in the former residence of the kings of Denmark - Rosenborg Castle (now a museum). It is used nowadays only during the royal funerals (in castrum doloris).
