The 2013 Coin Set proof version was issued 28 November 2013.
The proof version also includes the six coins in the Danish coin series, dated 2013. Furthermore, it includes the same medal as the ordinary coin set, but minted in fine silver.
The coins in the proof set are minted using at least three strokes with extremely well polished dies on specially treated coin blanks in order to ensure their very fine quality. The proof coin set is minted in a limited edition.
The medal – Royal monogram
This set includes the medal in silver. The obverse of the medal shows The Royal Danish Mint’s mark, a heart, under a crown, while the reverse shows royal monogram as a novelty.
A monogram consists of initials referring to the first letters of a person's or a couple's first and last names. The elegantly interwoven and often mirrored initials first appeared in the late 17th century. Originally the were used only by the upper classes – royalty and nobility – but later, towards the end of the 19th century, monograms came into more widespread use. This year’s medal shows the monogram used on some of the coins minted in the reign of King Frederik VIII from 1906 -1912.
