Danish Gold Coins

Historic Danish Coins

Between 1536 and 1814, Denmark and Norway were joined in a personal union, similar to that of England and Scotland after 1603. In 1713, the strain of fighting in the Great Northern War (1700 - 1721) led to a duel currency within the Kingdom, the Courant and the Specie standard. The Courant was a currency subject to inflationary debasement in order to fund the war effort. Long after the Great Northern War, this duel standard was maintained until 1813, when the rigsbankdaler was introduced.
Although the Courant currency was primarily a banknoted based currency, coins were also issued in its name. The gold Ducats Courant featured here (valued at 12 Marks) cointained .0808 oz of gold, as opposed to the 0.1098oz of gold contained in a Ducat Specie (valued at 14 Marks and 8 Skillings).
