This 20-krone commemorative coin in proof quality was issued to mark Her Majesty Queen Margrethe II and His Royal Highness Prince Henrik’s golden wedding anniversary on the 10 June 2017.
To achieve this quality, the surface of the embossing die is polished very smooth and the engraving is given a special treatment. The 20-krone proof coin was minted in a limited edition.
New portrait of The Queen and The Prince
The commemorative coin features a portrait of the couple, with the Queen and the Prince in three quarter profile, facing each other. Along the rim is a ring with the inscription: H.M. Dronningen og H.K.H. Prinsen (HM the Queen and HRH the Prince). The titles are separated by the Mint's heart.
The reverse motif is the joint monogram of the Queen and the Prince. Above it, the date and the years of the wedding and anniversary are shown. Below the monogram is the Mint's heart, which is also the symbol of love. Medallist Henrik Wiberg has sculpted the portrait and reproduced the joint monogram.
