On 8 August 2008 Danmarks Nationalbank issues a new 20-krone coin
with the Sea Stallion from Glendalough as its motif. This is the fourth
coin with a ship as motif. The coin was presented today at the Viking
Ship Museum in Roskilde.
The Sea Stallion from Glendalough is a reconstruction of the oceangoing
ship Skuldelev 2. The ship is expected to return from Dublin on
Saturday 9 August after a long trial voyage since the summer of 2007.
The original ship was built in Dublin in 1042 and ended her days on
the bottom of Roskilde Fjord at the end of the 11th century. The excavation
of the ship and four other viking ships laying side-by-side began
The motif for the coin has been made by the sculptor Erik Varming. It
shows the Sea Stallion on the ocean with the famous Roskilde Cathedral
in the background.
The Sea Stallion coin will enter into ordinary circulation in an edition
of 1.2 million.
The coin can be bought in packets of twenty in the banks, in Danmarks
Nationalbank (Banking Services) or via the website of The Royal
Mint, http://www.royalmint.dk" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
