The Danish Krone is the official currency of Denmark, greenland and the faroe islands. It has been in circulation since 1875. The currency is sometimes referred to as Danish crown because krone literally means crown. One krone is subdivided into 100 øre, the name øre is probably derived from the Roman word for gold. Altogether there are eleven denominations of the krone, with the smallest being the 50 øre coin (one half of a krone). Formerly there were more øre coins, but those were discontinued due to inflation. The denominations for banknote are 1000, 500, 200, 100 and 50 krone. The denominations for coins are 20, 10, 5, 2, 1 krone and 50 øre.
