200-krone silver coin
Alloy: 999‰ Ag

The obverse of the coin shows a right-side profile of the Queen. Behind the queen a stylised marguerite can be discerned. The portrait is placed in a small hollow in the coin so that the relief stands especially high. On the reverse appear a crown and nine marguerites, together with the coin denomination and the years 1940 and 2000. This version of the crown was used on the ½-, 1- and 2-krone coins dating from the period 1924-41. Both sides were designed by the sculptor Mogens Møller.
