Regents & coins

 

To many numismatists collecting coins is not enough. Collecting brings forward the need to know detalis about the specific coin, but also when it was issued, weight, year etc. A way to categorize coin in, is to find out who issued the coin under which crown. One could easily categorized from the value of the coin but a more usefull way is by list of kings and queens. In the following list you will find the list of kings and queen in Denmark and their monograms. You can also read thier mottos, though some of them are in Latin.

As a special service you will find a listing with all the coins issued under the various regents - just press the cameras and the coins will reveal themselves. If you should find pictures of coins missing, it is because they either haven't been scanned yet or the photo is still missing. Should you by any chance have or know someone who can contribute with the missing pictures please let me know. Many thanks in advance.
