The inflation were increasing and in 1960 a 5 Krone coin was replacing the 5 Krone bank note. The 5 Krone coin was the beginning of a new series of coins.

It was the idea to return with the coppercoins for the low values, because Denmark became richer during the 1950's

During the first years of the 1960's the Royal Mint was coining 5, 2, and 1 ěre of copper. The production of the 2 and 1 ěre stopped in 1966, because the inflation had made the production of these small values too expensive. The 2 and 1 ěre have never been issued for cirkulation.




The hole in the center of the 25 ěre returned in 1966. It was difficult for some people to see, if it was a 25 ěre or a 1 Krone coin, they had in their purse.
