Aureo sale 242, lot 456
The specimen shown was lot 456 in Aureo y Calico sale 242 (Barcelona, March 2012), where it sold for 1,000 € (about $1,553 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"Dinamarca. 1732. Christian VI. Copenhague. CW. 1 corona. Bella. Brillo original. Rara. EBC-. (kingdom of Denmark, Christian VI, krone of 1732, Copenhagen mint. Handsome, original luster, rare, about extremely fine.)"
Danish currency endured several "reforms" in the nineteenth century. Until 1813, 1 ducat = 2 speciedaler = 12 mark = 192 skilling Danske. After the reform of 1813, 1 frederiks d'or = 5 speciedaler = 10 rigsbankdaler = 960 rigsbankskilling. In 1854, the speciedaler was dropped but the remaining denominations were unchanged. In 1874, all the old denominations were terminated in favor of 1 krone = 100 ore, which system is still in use, tho the krone is no longer silver. This type is listed for 1731-32. It is a little small and a little low in silver to be a true crown but Davenport thought it worth including so we have included it as well.

Recorded mintage: 9,836.

Specification: 22.27 g, .671 fine silver, .480 troy oz ASW.

Catalog reference: KM 537, Dav-A1294.
