Danish coins from 2017
Uncirculated 20-krone minted in 2017 sold in rolls of 20 pcs.

The new 20-krone coin with the modified obverse and reverse design was put into circulation in January 2011. The 20-krone coin was first issued in 1990.

Obverse
The obverse depicts a portrait of the Queen, in keeping with tradition for the highest denominations in a Danish coin series. The portrait is the work of the Sculptress, Lis Nogel, and was used on the commemorative issued to mark the Queen´s 70th birthday. Between "Margrethe II" and "Danmarks Dronning" is a small heart, called a mint mark. The mint mark is a heart indicating the issuing authority, The Royal Danish Mint in Copenhagen. The year of minting is shown at the bottom of the coin.

Reverse
The reverse depicts the small coat of arms, also called the national coat of arms. It comprises three lions and nine hearts under one crown. The three crowned lions have been used by Danish kings for the last 800 years. In the 16th century the number of hearts was set at nine. The hearts may not be hearts at all, but heraldic lily leaves (floating hearts) which in turn may be derived from linden leaves. The reverse of the 20-krone coin is designed by the Royal Heraldic Painter Ronny Andersen and is used for coins minted as from 2011.

Previous versions
The portrait is changed from time to time to ensure a contemporary portrait which is as close a likeness as possible. Three different portraits of the Queen have previously been used in the present coin series.

The sculptress Hanne Varming (used in 1989 - 1993)
The medallist Jan Petersen (used in 1994 - 1999)
The sculptor, professor Mogens Møller (used in 2001 - 2010)
