Uncirculated 5-krone minted in 2016 sold in rolls of 40 pcs. to 200 DKK.
The 5-krone coin was put into circulation on 10 April 1990.
The obverse of the coin shows the Queen's monogram in a new artistic interpretation, specially designed for the 1-, 2- and 5-krone coins. The monogram is reproduced three times, interlinked by three crowns. The threefold reproduction of the monogram is deeply rooted in the Danish coin tradition. The reproduction of the monogram deviates from the customary depiction, but is in accordance with coinage tradition.
The hole is retained as a tradition in only very few countries. It was used for the first time by the Danish mint in 1924. Below is the year of minting. The ornamentation on the reverse is inspired by prehistoric finds. The coin bears hearts on both obverse and reverse.
The heart is a mint mark showing the place of minting, the Royal Danish Mint. The use of the heart is a century old tradition, originally indicating the mint master, later the place of minting. Today the mint mark serves no practical purpose, since Danish coins are minted at only one place.
