Trivia Crack Answer: Krone
About the official currency of Denmark
The krone is the official currency of Denmark. The krone is also the official currency of Greenland and the Faroe Islands. Krone in Danish means crown. Although many political groups favor switching to the euro, Denmark has chosen to keep the krone as its official currency. The last vote on this issue was taken in 2000. However, the krone’s value is still tied to the euro. Its value cannot be over 15% more or less than the euro at any point in time. Denmark will likely eventually join the eurozone. The krone is the only official currency tied to the euro in this way (ERM II agreement). The krone is currently worth about 15 US cents or 13 cents in euros. The official currency comes in 50, 100, 200, 500 and 1000 bills. There are 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, and 50 kroner coins. More than one krone is a kroner. The krone was introduced as the official currency of Denmark in 1619. Denmark first used a silver standard for their coins, then switched to using the gold standard from 1875-1914. They returned to it in 1924, then permanently stopped using the gold standard in 1931. The oldest Danish coins were minted in the late 1100s. Most Danish monarchs have had coins with their portraits issued.
