Christian IX, Frederick VIII and Christian X ruled the Kingdom of Denmark for a combined 84 years. To honor the kings, each were featured on the Danish 20 Kroners gold coins minted between 1873-1931. These rare Danish 20 Kroners are available at Provident Metals and are of our choice.
The obverse of each gold bullion coin depicts each ruler’s portrait and name, along with the country’s name, which is either “KONGE AF DANMARK” or “DANMARKS KONGE.” The dates are also included on the Christian IX and X coins.
While the Frederick VIII and Christian X reverses are almost identical, the Christian IX reverse displays Liberty seated on heap of wheat while grasping a shield and a staff. A herring swims near her feet, which can give the illusion of a mermaid, which is why the reverse is often referred to as the mermaid. It is inscribed with “20 Kroner.” The Frederick VIII and Christian X reverses show the Kingdom’s Coat of Arms with the date, mint marks and denomination below the illustration.
Christian IX ruled from 1863-1906, which covers 43 years and is the most of the three kings in this set. Frederick VIII was king for six years from 1906-1912 and was followed by Christian X, who ruled for 35 years from 1912-1947.
