The krone remains the official unit of currency for Denmark and the greater Kingdom of Denmark, which includes Greenland and the Faroe Islands. The earliest known denomination of krone issued was a penny struck in 825 AD and since that time the Royal Danish Mint has issued krone coinage in silver, cupro-nickel alloys, aluminum, and even gold.

On the reverse of 10 Kroner Gold Danish Coins, you’ll find varying designs depending upon the date of issue. While the designs changed at various points during the 45-year production of the 10 Kroner Gold Coin, the most common element found on this side was the coat of arms for the Kingdom of Denmark. The typical design is what is now known as the Lesser States Version of the coat of arms. Though accompanying elements change, you’ll typically find the crowned shield with three lions on it still featured within the modern seal.
The obverse of 10 Kroner Gold Danish Coins also varies by date mark based on the ruling monarch at the time of issue. Most of the 10 Kroner Gold Danish Coins were issued during the reign of King Christian IX of Denmark. His reign lasted from 1863 to 1906 and his effigy on the coins features in right-profile relief with engravings of “Christian XI” and “Konge Af Danmark,” which translates to English as “King of Denmark.” Other possible monarchs during this time include his son Frederick VIII (1906-1912) and grandson Christian X (1912-1947). All obverse designs, regardless of the monarch, include the date mark and “Konge Af Danmark.”
