Denmark, 5 ore, 1965

And a coin for today.

Denmark, 5 ore, 1965 (KM #848.1)

Denmark! Most of the Danish coins I see are from the 1960s, by far more than any other decade. Why is that? Anyway, this coins was Denmark’s 5-ore piece from 1960-1972, when the last Danish 5-ore coin was minted. The denomination was scrapped entirely in 1989. Being bronze, this coin has a melt value of about 5 cents just for its copper content. Today, Denmark’s lowest coin is the 50-ore coin. Denmark is technically part of the Eurozone, but currently has a treaty exemption from adopting the euro.
