The 1997 series


The 1997 series of banknotes was introduced over a period of two years, from 1997 to 1999. In the years 2002 to 2005 the banknote series was upgraded with two new security features - a hologram and fluorescent colours. In 2006, Danmarks Nationalbank initiated the process to design a new Danish banknote series to replace the existing series.The key motif on the face of each banknote is a portrait of an individual who made a significant contribution to Danish art or science. The motifs on the reverse of the banknotes are inspired by stone reliefs from Danish churches dating from just after the introduction of Christianity.
