interesting facts:
The commemorative coin with face value 20 kroner from 1992 was issued to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the royal couple wedding (silver anniversary). On June 10, 1967 French Count Henri Marie Jaan Andre de Laborde de Monpezat married the heir to Danish throne Princess Margrethe Alexandrine Þórhildur Ingrid in Holmen church in Copenhagen. The fairytale-like reverse of this coin shows a typical design of houses built on Danish allotments, which look like miniature palaces.
