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:
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).
