On special occasions in the Royal House, Danmarks Nationalbank will issue a commemorative coin.
Her Majesty the Queen's 80th birthday on 16 April 2020 is a special occasion, and therefore a 500 krone silver coin, a 20 krone coin in a proof version and 20-krone coin for general circulation were issued.
The portrait shows the Queen in profile, facing right. It is made by the sculptor Lis Nogel.
The reverse shows a motif based on symbols referring to the Queen's motto and her artistic work: a heart encircled by 12 pairs of scissors. The motto is reflected in the heart (the people's love) and the circle (Denmark's strength). The scissor blades form the letter M- for Margrethe - and the circle represents people sticking together. The reverse is designed by the graphic designer Jeanette Skov Jensen.
