|The Very Highest Quality Danish Coins...|
Coins were first minted in Denmark under Sweyn Forkbeard in 995, the coins minted were silver pennings (pennies), and may well have been influenced by their dealings with Anglo-Saxon pennies looted and traded for by the Danes. In 1625, the Danish currency was reformed, with 12 Pennings to the Skilling (shilling) and 16 Skilling to the Mark, with 6 Marks to the Rigsdaler. In 1713, the currency was divided into two systems, courant and specie, with the former a debased version of the latter, which was still strictly tied to a precious metal standard. By the time the currency was reformed again in 1813, the Specie Rigsdaler was worth 12 times that of its Courant equivilent. The 1812 reform, brought about by Denmarks disastrous involvement in the Napoleonic Wars, established the new Rigsbankdaler at 6 Rigsdaler Courant to the Rigsbankdaler, subdivided into 96 Rigsbankskilling. With the disappearance of the Speciedaler, the new currency was renamed Rigsdaler in 1854.
The Rigsdaler was abolished when, with the formation of the Scandanavian Monetary Union in 1873, the Rigsdaler was replaced by the Krone (Crown) at 2 Kroners to the Rigsdaler. Although the Scandanvian Monetary Union broke up in 1914, the name of the Danish currency has remained the same down to the present day.
Modern Danish coins are denominated in Kroners, subdivided into 100 Ore.
