First Danish Euro Coin Designs

Denmark & The Euro
We believe that Denmark will eventually join the Euro, along with about a dozen other countries. Although the Danish National Bank produced a set of images for possible Danish euro coins, it is not known whether any official plans have been made to turn these designs into the real thing, or even into a pattern for a set.

Unofficial Patterns
On a number of previous occasions, especially before major coinage changes, pattern coins have been produced as a design exercise or to test public opinion. Many of these have been privately produced. A privately produced pattern set of British euro coins has already been produced, and met with intense demand, despite almost negligible marketing. Originally priced at around €40, these have changed hands for over €250 on e-bay.
Now, a pattern set of euro coins has been announced in a similar format to that of the British pattern coins.

THE DANSKE PROVE - PATTERN EURO COINS

HISTORY OF THIS COLLECTION - OCTOBER 2002

The 2002 adoption of the new euro coinage has been a success and it seems ever more likely that the 'eurozone' will grow as other nations swap their existing national currencies for the euro.

On 2 May 2000, the Danish government submitted a bill for an Act (No.288) relating to Denmark's proposed participation in the common Euro currency. Joining the Euro would have represented a surrender of some sovereignty under the Danish constitution of 5 June 1953, and therefore a public referendum was required. This took place on 28 September 2000. With a total turnout of 87.4%, the result was 46.9% 'yes' to 53.1% 'no' votes. Surprisingly, the bill was rejected, but by a small margin.

The basis of the bill was that Denmark would introduce the Euro and Euro cent currency units, which were already destined for adoption by other countries within the European Community. The Euro would have been introduced as an accounting unit in Denmark from 1 January 2002, and as physical Euro coins and notes from 1 January 2004. Initially, the plan was for 1 billion examples of the complete Danish coin series, consisting of 8 coin denominations, 2 and 1 Euro, and 50,20,10,5,2, and 1 cents, all to be struck by the Danish Royal Mint.

At the request of the Danish government, Denmark's National Bank prepared sketches for the coin designs, which were published by the government in a booklet in early September 2000. The designs were publicised in Denmark's newspapers – including the Berlingske Tidente (which favoured Denmark's entry into the eurozone) and this created great interest, nationally.

The International Numismatic Agency has now taken those officially produced Danish euro coinage designs and updated them a little, in the light of current euro coinage. The designs have been made (by INA) into pattern or prototype coins to show exactly how Denmark's currency could look and to assure the public that when Denmark adopts the euro it can still retain a fine coinage series. INA has been in contact with the National Bank in Copenhagen.

The little mermaid and the crown of Denmark feature on the 5c, 2c, and 1c pieces. The 12 stars of Europe surround the design, and behind the image of the mermaid is the Danish trading ship Viking (c.1902). The 2 euro – 10 cent patterns have an uncrowned monarchic representation, the stars of Europe and the date 2002. Some of the design is incuse and some is raised. A vertical line down the coin produces an effect similar to that on the Luxemburg and Netherlands euro coins.

There is also a commemorative pattern 5 Euro which features a seated female figure with the arms of Denmark and a larger version of the trading ship Viking alongside.

The reverse designs are those (to represent commerce, peace and justice) which were proposed to the European Commission as a replacement for Luc Luycx's maps of Europe.

The producers have already produced a number of sets of pattern euro coins to demonstrate how the United Kingdom coinage could look in the event of the euro replacing the Pound as the national currency. The mintage of each type (in silver, nickel silver, copper and golden alloy) has sold out completely.
