Welcome to Danish Coin Values.
I have collected Danish coins for the past 30 years, and have learned that the prices indicated in the various coin guides rarely ever hold true. Granted should you go to a coin dealer, then the prices listed will often reflect what you can expect to pay for a given coin. Often however, I have found that people or collectors, are more interested in the values of thier particular coins, and here is where the guides come up short. As it turns out, and for obvious reasons (they have to make a living off the coins), the coin dealer will not pay what the coin guide says the coin is worth. The coin guide is thus more of a dealers sales guide than it is a "what's it worth guide". However, some of the more rare coins may fecth close to the guides prices.
I have over the years participated in numerous auctions, coin forums, and deals between professionals and non-professionals, as well as deals in general, and have in my humble oppinion attained a fair grasp of the values of Danish Coins in particular the years 1874 to present. On this site you will be able to locate your coin as well as what you can expect the coin to be worth. Granted there is the fact that in order for the coin to actually have a value, there needs to be interested buyers - but on this site we maintain the concept of there always being willing buyers.
Before you venture into looking up the value of your coin(s), a few words on the grading needs to be said. Why? Well a each coin has a value according to the quality of the coin - the newer it appears, the more valueable it is. Thus it is a good idea to have a grasp of how danish coins are valuated, how the valuation system works.
The Danish coins are valuated in the following manner:
|0||This is an Uncirculated coin and as such error free. Think of it as a coin that once minted or when it reached its destination it was carefully put aside. It can have bag marks (scrathes from other coins) but these needs to be few. The coin has full lustre.|
|01||This is an Extremely Fine coin. It is not quite as nice as the uncirculted coin, but has no signs of wear and tear. Mint lustre is partially present.|
|1+||This is a Very Fine coin. The coin shows signs of wear on the highest points, and it is obvious it has been in circulation. The mint lustre is gone.|
This is a Fine coin. The coin shows strong signs of circulation, however the origianal details can still be determined.
This coin falls into the category of Very Good. The majority of the coin is worn, but details can still be distinguished.
Coins that fall outside the above categories are called Good and Poor, and in the Danish system recieves a 2 and a 3 respectively. However these rarely have pricepoints, as they are too worn for the majority of collectors. Only the very rare coins may hold a value in these categories, however far below the coin guide values.
In the Menu on the left, you can locate the denomination of your coin. Then chose the year and then find your coin(s). Please note that all valuations are in Danish Kroners, as this is the main currency used in trading these coins.
The values on this site are derived from numerous sources such as numismatic forums price lists, internet auctions, and public auction results. Use these values as a guideline for evaluating the reasonableness of dealer prices, setting up trades with other collectors, and estimating the worth of your collection.
