The Royal Danish Mint has launched (23rd February) their latest Mint set for children. The set features a Teddy Bear theme and includes a specially minted medal produced in Nordic metal.
Denmark’s popular 2016 Coin Set for Children presentation folder opens like a picture book and features lovely color drawings of a Teddy Bear and his family enjoying a picnic at the beach. The set also includes a cut out template with teddy bears. The clothes for the teddy bears can be printed from a link on the Royal Mint’s Web site, colored in with crayons, and cut out with scissors, enabling a more personalized set for your child.
The new set of 2016-dated coins ranges from 50 ore to twenty kroner pieces and also includes the new initials of the mint master (Lars Gerrild Sørensen) and the medallist (Henrik Wiberg). The initials are placed on the coins’ front left, to the right of the year.
All 2016-dated coin sets have an ever greater significance for collectors young and old as these will be the last coins minted by the Royal Danish Mint. From next year, circulation coins commissioned from the National Bank of Denmark will be produced externally; after more than a thousand years, Danish coin production will officially come to an end.
The final generic and Proof sets produced by the Royal Danish Mint will be made available later in the year. For more information on this and other coins, coin sets, and bank notes produced by the Royal Danish Mint for Denmark and Faeroe Islands, please visit their Web site. Information is offered in Danish and English; international orders will be dispatched where applicable.
