Denmark 1, 2, 5, 10, and 25 Ore  1948 to 1971
Denmark 1, 2, 5, 10, and 25 Ore 1948 to 1971

These coins from Denmark were minted in various denominations (1, 2, 5, 10, and 25 ore) and various metals (bronze, zinc, iron, nickel) between 1948 and 1971. Generally, the zinc and iron coins look dark when found today, as shown in our secondary picture. Leafy embellishments in the pattern do not appear on the smaller denominations.

The crowned monogram is for King Frederik IX. The tiny heart found between the letters below 'ěRE' is the mint mark for Copenhagen. The letters to either side of the heart are the initials of the mint master.

Value-wise, these are not valuable coins. They are modern and made of non-precious metal. Collectors will pay a few US dollars for specimens, but only when in exceptionally good condition. There are a few *good dates* called out below. Here are some approximate catalog values:

1 ORE
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: less than $1
well preserved: less than $1
fully uncirculated: $5
coins before 1961 catalog near $10 when fully uncirculated

2 ORE
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: less than $1
well preserved: $1
fully uncirculated: $5
coins before 1961 catalog near $10 when fully uncirculated

5 ORE

5 ore minted in bronze after 1962 are far more common and catalog for $5 in fully uncirculated condition
5 ore minted in zinc with date 1950 catalogs for $20 in average circulated condition

10 ORE

average circulated: less than $1

10 ore dated 1959 are rare and catalog near $250 when fully uncirculated and $50 when worn

25 ORE
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $1

fully uncirculated: $15
coins dated 1948 and 1960 are more rare and catalog around $10 in average circulated condition

25 ore coins dated after 1965 with a hole in the middle are very common. They catalog at less than $1 unless when fully uncirculated, in which case the catalog value rises to $3 for the 1966 to 1969 dates. Later dates are worth only $1 even when fully uncirculated.
