Denmark 1/2 krone, 1 krone, and 2 Kroner  1924 to 1941
Denmark 1/2 krone, 1 krone, and 2 Kroner 1924 to 1941

Denmark issued a bunch of 2 kroner coins during the early 1900s, and they all have neat patterns. It would be a worthwhile collecting endeavor to assemble a set of nice-looking examples, one from each of the 12 different patterns. It would not be overly expensive, but it would not be cheap, either.

While early 2 kroners were minted in silver, by the time 1924 came around Denmark moved to aluminum-bronze. Mario's example is in such good condition, it looks like gold. But, alas, it is not.

Here are some typical catalog values for Denmark krone coins dated between 1924 and 1941. They all use the spiffy interlocked Cs and crown patterns. The Cs stand for King Christian X, who ruled Denmark between 1912 and 1947

The catalogs say around $35, but these are regularly traded for much less. A search of successful, completed auctions on eBay tells me that people are willing to pay around $10 for the average specimen up to about $40 for beautiful coins. - CoinQuest (Chris)
