What is the Currency of Denmark? Danish currency is Danish Krone.
Danish Krone is the currency used in Denmark, Greenland, and the Faroe Islands. The krone etymologically derives from the Danish word "krone", meaning "crown" representing the royal and monarchy. The international display code is DKK. 1 krone is divided into 100. The Danish krone is fixed to the Euro. The crown was fixed on the German mark to preserve its value before the euro emerged. At cross rates, it is equal to 1 € = 7.441 DKK.
In the referendum in 2000, the majority of the people voted 'no' for Euro and they still use krone. Although the conservative-liberal parties wanted to hold a new referendum in 2004, the referendum was abandoned in the public opinion polls due to the lack of support for the European currency.
