Hi everyone!

I know they aren't the greatest pictures but I was just hoping for a rough idea anyways!

Could you please help me assign a grade and rough value of this coin? I would really appreciate it!!

Thank you!

Hi Mrklzy and

I would grade this as Fine by European standards, possibly nearer VF by North American standards. I couldn't comment on a numerical grade! These coins are notoriously hard to grade as there's no portrait and not much in the way of design to show wear. I think my Krause lists it at about $1.50. I've got an identical coin, same date and similar condition, and I picked it up a few months ago from my local dealer's junk tray for 25 pence (around 45c in Canadian money). It's a coin that would probably fetch more in Scandinavia than in the UK or North America.

Second photo looks ike there might be some kind of reside (tape?) on this side of the coin. This will detract from value. I agree with @NumisRob that this is VF by North American standards.
You can compare to these examples that have sold recently on on eBay: https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nk...e=1&_fosrp=1

Its a base metal coin (Nickel brass) and very common. Value would be under 1 dollar. Condition is goodFine or so and the coin would be worth a bit more if in better condition.

Still an interesting and historic piece nearly 100 years old.

A good way to start a coin collection.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

I'm not sure this piece would catch so much more in Scandinavia, I'd almost wager the opposite - that this could be a very common find in junk lots, particularly exclusively Danish coin lots that are of rather low interest in a region where they're still littering jars and drawers. While this is an impressive piece, its historical context needs to be considered. It was issued just after the seemingly global abolishment or debasement of silver as Denmark had in circulation until these pieces were issued in the 1920's. Because they are base metal, they would have circulated for longer (up until the 1960's) when the last large 2kr piece was issued. Like in neighbouring Sweden (and comparable to US/Canadian 50c pieces), these large coins would have been seen as large, bulky and a relic of the past and tucked away, meaning many circulated pieces are readily available today.

One fun fact about this piece is that while it would be rather difficult to spend, it is legal tender for 2 Danish Kroner. The National Bank keeps any issue of a denomination legal tender until it is demonetised (eg. the 25 ěre pieces in 2008 - in which all previous issues could have been used up until then). This means that despite material and size are woefully incorrect, you could use this piece to pay off your debt of DKK 2, but that would barely buy you a grain of rice in Denmark
