About the currency
Coins and notes
The ‘crown’ is made up of 100 Øre, although most transactions will occur in flat krones. You may stumble on a 50 Øre coin, but you’ll most likely just find 1, 2, 5, 10 and 20 kr coins.
Banknotes then take over with 50, 100, 200, 500 and 1,000 kr values. Think of all the happiness that could buy!
Facts about the currency
- All DKK coins are completely different in size, weight and trim so they can be easily identified by people with low vision.
- You might want to hang onto a few coins or notes, because Denmark has previously declared they want a completely electronic, cash-free economy.
- The 1, 2 and 5 kr coins have holes in the middle of them. Because why not?
- The 100 kr note is locally called the dog (which translates to hund, short for hundrede).
