Denmark 1/2 and 1 Skilling Rigsmont 1856 to 1863

The big F monogram on this coin is for King Frederick VII who ruled Denmark from 1848 to 1863. Skilling rigmonts were issued in 1/2 and 1 denominations during his reign. The listings below give approximate catalog values that apply to all dates except as noted.

The coin in our image is circulated but has extra nice eye appeal. This appeal raises its value because collectors are willing to pay more for nice looking coins to add to their collections.

The mint marks on these coins are the crown for Copenhagen and the globe (or 'globus cruciger') which looks like a circle with a little cross on top for Altona. The mint marks on these coins are very small, and are found on the side with the large 'F VII' monogram, just below the empty space between the F and V, between the smallest leaves of the wreath.

Requester description: 1856 Side 1: 1856 on bottom center(#'s not separated). Large letter F decorated with horizontal lines that are close together, in the center of coin. Small Vll next to the F, and have same horizontal lines. The F 'wears' a fancy crown (top of coin). A laurel of oak leaves is set above the date, 1856, and surrounds the F Vll up to the crown. Both sides have a castle battlements design around the face-edge of the coin. Side 2: A very large number 1 inside of a circle in the center. The background of the circle and 'behind' the number 1, is close horizontal lines for decoration. The word SKILLING in capital letters follows the curve of the center circle on the top of the coin, as does the word RIGSMONT on the bottom. There are two 6-point stars, one on each side of the coin that separate the two words, SKILLING and RIGSMONT, that are positioned at 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock. That's all. Hope you can help me. :)
