Denmark, 10 ore, 1955

Another bonus coin tonight.

Denmark, 10 ore, 1955 (KM #841.1)

This type of 10 ore was minted from 1948-1960, during the reign of King Frederick IX. If it hadn’t been demonetized in 1989, this one would be worth 1.9 cents USD. Note the tiny letters underneath the word “ORE”. Those serve like privy marks, denoting the chief official for the Danish Mint at the time, or something like that. I’m not entirely sure who they represent.

Metal Copper-nickel
Weight 2.95 g
Diameter 17.91 mm

Demonetized 03-30-1989
