In the late of the 1980's the inflation in Denmark finaly stopped. New plans were made for a new series of coins. The plans were all with the high-value coins in a yellow metal like gold, the middle in a white metal like silver, and the low values in red like cobber.

The first coins were a 50 ěre and a 10 Krone, both coined in 1989. During the next years the rest of the coins were issued with the last one - a 2 Krone in 1992.
