About the coin:
A cupro-nickel version of coin was introduced in 1960 with the same design except the coat of arms was swapped with the Royal Coat of Arms, a distinct design. Its weight increased to 6.8g. In 1973, the portrait on the coin was changed to the new Queen Margrethe II of Denmark. Her inscription was MARGRETHE II DANMARKS DRONNING (Margrethe II Denmark’s Queen). The reverse remained the same.
The present-day design of the coin was first minted in 1992 and introduced into circulation on 26 January 1993. The Queen’s monogram and the crown decorate the obverse in a pattern around a central hole, and the reverse is based on pre-historic Danish art. From 2000 onwards, the mintmarks on the obverse have been permanently removed.
