January the 14th 1972 king Frederik IX died and his daughter, Margrethe, became queen of Denmark.

It was more than a year before the new coins were in circulation. There were some troubles in the design of the new coins, but at last they came - the same sizes as the ones from the time of King Frederik. The monogram used on the 'ěre'-coins is designed by the Queen of Denmark.

The young girls of Denmark were collecting 1 ěre coins for their wedding shoes - it was impossible after June the 30th 1972.

July the 1st 1972 the lowest values of the danish coins, 2 and 1 ěre, couldn't be used as payment anymore because of the inflation. The 5 ěre is made of iron with a thin cover of copper.



During the 1970's the danish inflation was growing and in 1980 it was the end of the 10 Krone bank note. The note was replaced by a 10 Krone coin. The coin was in a new design made for a new series of Danish coins. However, only the 10 Krone coin was issued.
