Denmark 1-KRONE (KM819) Dolphin
In 1873 Denmark underwent monetary reform and adopted the krone, subdivided into 100 ore. This is the second silver krone from that period and was minted in 1915 and 1916 only.
Dolphins are an ancient omen of good luck, and fair weather. Its appearance here is probably a nod to Denmark's history as a seafaring nation dating back to the 10th century. To the right of the coat of arms is a stalk of wheat, because Denmark was leading the way in the agricultural revolution.
