The 1972 series


The 1972 series was issued from 1974 to 1995. Only the 100-krone banknote in this series was issued in a revised version, called the 1972A series, in 1995, in order to enhance protection against counterfeiting. The faces of the banknotes show paintings by the well-known Danish artist Jens Juel (1745-1802). The reverse motifs are animals drawn by Ib Andersen, Johannes Larsen and Gunnar Andersen.

10-krone banknote

Format 125 x 67 mm.

The 10-krone banknote was issued on 8 April 1975 and has been withdrawn since 11 March 1980, when it was replaced by a coin. The portrait on the face of the banknote is of Cathrine Sophie Kirchhoff, née Christensen, who was married to Johan Henrik Kirchhoff, Councillor of State. The portrait was painted in 1768 by Jens Juel (1745-1802). The original painting is in the collection of the Museum of National History at Frederiksborg Castle.

Format 125 x 72 mm.

The 20-krone banknote was issued on 11 March 1980 and has been withdrawn since 10 April 1990, when it was replaced by a coin. The portrait on the face of the banknote is of Pauline Tutein, née Rath, who was married to the merchant Peter Tutein. The portrait was painted by Jens Juel (1745-1802). The watermark on the 20-krone banknote differs from that on the other banknotes in the 1972 series, in that it shows a palette with brushes.
The sparrows on the reverse were reproduced from a drawing by Danmarks Nationalbank's illustrator at the time, Gunnar Andersen (1919-1981).

The crucian carp on the reverse was reproduced from a drawing by the illustrator and architect Ib Andersen (1907-69).

100-krone banknote

100-krone banknote 1972A

Format 150 x 78 mm.

The 100-krone banknote was issued on 22 October 1974 and has been withdrawn since 16 October 1995. A revised version was issued on 16 October 1995 (the 1972A series) and has been withdrawn since 22 November 1999. Only the 100-krone banknote in the 1972 series was issued in a revised version, called the 1972A series, in order to enhance protection against counterfeiting. At that time, Danmarks Nationalbank had started using a new banknote printing press with improved printing technology, making it possible to add new, enhanced security features to the banknote. These new security features included microprint, a partly visible metallic security thread and strong colours (the diamond pattern on the banknote). The portrait on the face of the banknote is a self-portrait of Jens Juel, painted in Dresden in 1773/74, when he was around 28 years old. The original painting is in the collection of the National Gallery of Denmark. The same portrait is found in the watermark on this banknote and on the 10-, 50- and 500-krone banknotes in the series.
The Red Underwing moth on the reverse was reproduced from a watercolour by Ib Andersen (1907-1969).

500-krone banknote

Format 164 x 85 mm.

The 500-krone banknote was issued on 18 April 1974 and has been withdrawn since 12 September 1997. The portrait on the face of the banknote is presumed to be of a noble lady from Holstein, Franziska Genoveva von Qualen, née d'Abbestée, painted by Jens Juel (1745-1802). The original painting is in the collection of the museum at Ahrensburg in Holstein, Germany. The lizard on the reverse was reproduced from a drawing by the illustrator and architect Ib Andersen (1907-1969).

1000-krone banknote

Format 176 x 94 mm.

The 1000-krone banknote was issued on 11 March 1975 and has been withdrawn since 18 September 1998. The portrait on the face of the banknote is of Thomasine Heiberg (after her second marriage Gyllembourg Ehrensvärd), née Buntzen, painted in the 1790s by Jens Juel (1745-1802). Today she is probably best known as the mother of Johan Ludvig Heiberg, who wrote the Danish national play "Elverhøj", and as the mother-in-law of the actress Johanne Luise Heiberg. The original painting is in the collection of the Museum of National History at Frederiksborg Castle.
The squirrel on the reverse was reproduced from a watercolour and pencil drawing by the illustrator and architect Ib Andersen (1907-1969).
