Product Description

Fineness and Fine Weight

Danish 20 Kroner Gold Coins have a fine weight of 8.06 grams and a fineness of 900/1000. They consist of a gold copper alloy in the proportions 90% gold and 10% copper. The copper content provides good scratch resistance, since copper is a harder metal.

Appearance

The 20 Kroner Christian X has a reddish (golden red) color, which is caused by the natural color of copper. The color of the coin changes over time to a darker red due to the corrosion of copper. The coin has edge bar and an ornamental circle.

The front depicts the profile of King Christian X of Denmark and the marginal inscription: CHRISTIAN X Konge AF DANMARK 1930 N.

The reverse depicts the Great Coat of Arms of Denmark. On the bottom of the coin the year of issue and the nominal value of 20 Kroner are embossed.
