New Danish banknote series

In 2006, Danmarks Nationalbank has initiated the process of designing a new Danish banknote series to replace the current series from 1997. The first banknote in the new series is expected to be issued in 2009 and the last banknote in 2012  

In 2006, Danmarks Nationalbank has initiated the process of designing a new Danish banknote series to replace the current series from 1997. The first banknote in the new series is expected to be issued in 2009 and the last banknote in 2012.

The theme of the new banknote series will be Danish bridges and the surrounding landscapes, or details from these landscapes. This theme reflects Denmark's position as a country surrounded by water, crossed by bridges that bind the Danes together. The following bridges have been selected:

1. The old Little Belt Bridge linking Jutland and Funen
2. Knippelsbro in Copenhage
3. Queen Alexandrine's Bridge linking Zealand and Møn
4. The Sallingsund Bridge linking Jutland and Mors
5. The Great Belt Bridge linking Zealand and Funen

The bridges have been chosen for their architectural diversity and geographical location in different parts of Denmark.

A number of artists have been invited to submit draft proposals for the new banknote series. An exhibition in Danmarks Nationalbank showing draft proposals for new Danish banknotes is shown in January 2007. The chosen proposal will be published in 2007.

Draft proposals for new Danish banknotes

The exhibition is open to the public on weekdays between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. and will end on 2 February 2007.  

On 11 January an exhibition in Danmarks Nationalbank showing draft proposals for new Danish banknotes will be opened by the Board of Governors.

The exhibition shows the work of eight prominent Danish artists, who were invited in the summer of 2006 to prepare a draft proposal to a new series of Danish banknotes.

The eight artists are:
Kaspar Bonnén
Stig Brøgger
Erik Hagens
Peter Holst Henckel
Leif Kath
Karin Birgitte Lund
Morten Schelde
Nina Sten-Knudsen

Draft proposals for new Danish banknotes   

Danmarks Nationalbank has asked the artists Kaspar Bonnén and Karin Birgitte Lund to elaborate on their respective draft proposals for the design of a new Danish banknote series. They have been chosen among the eight draft proposals published by Danmarks Nationalbank on 11 January. On the basis of the detailed proposals, Danmarks Nationalbank will take the final decision on which of the two proposals is most appropriate for a new Danish banknote series. The draft proposals from Kaspar Bonnén and Karin Birgitte Lund both have great potential, but neither can be used as it stands. In the period until 1 May 2007, the two artistswill therefore elaborate on their proposed designs.

Shortly afterwards, Danmarks Nationalbank will announce which of the two artists it has chosen to design the new Danish banknote series. The eight draft proposals were exhibited in Danmarks Nationalbank's lobby.
