Copenhagen Coin Fair Copenhagen

03. November 2024 | Coin trade fair

The Copenhagen Coin Fair, often simply known as "CCF," is recognized as a prestigious gathering point for connoisseurs and collectors of coins, medals, and banknotes, providing a platform where exhibitors and visitors can present their valuable items to an interested and knowledgeable audience. It is held annually at the Scandic Hotel in Copenhagen and is organized by the Danish Numismatic Society, an association dedicated to promoting and exchanging numismatic knowledge in Denmark and beyond since its foundation..

The fair focuses on key topics related to coins, medals, and banknotes, not only offering insight into historical specimens and rarities but also showcasing current mintings and innovations in the field of coinage. Exhibitors from various sectors, such as mints, private collectors, and specialized dealers, seize the opportunity to present their products and services.

The connection of the fair to the city of Copenhagen and Denmark in general is profound and reflects the deep-rootedness and the country’s pride in its numismatic history and tradition.

The oldest Danish coins, originating from the Viking Age (approx. 800–1050 AD), were influenced by the design of foreign coins, notably from the Carolingian Empire and Anglo-Saxon England, and often bore rune inscriptions.

In the 11th century, with King Knut IV (1080-1086) playing a significant role, Denmark began introducing a more unified coin system. During this era, Copenhagen, as an emerging metropolis, gained influence over the design and distribution of coins.

In 1397, the Union of Kalmar, which united the kingdoms of Denmark, Norway, and Sweden under a single monarch, impacted coin minting and led to a more unified design approach, although each kingdom maintained its own mints and coin designs. Copenhagen, as the capital, played a central role in Denmark’s numismatic history, boasting its own mint and becoming the epicenter of coin production and distribution.

The 20th century saw Danish coinage reflecting the nation's growing sense of identity and modernity, featuring designs that highlighted prominent Danish symbols, historical figures, and architectural marvels.

Today, coins and banknotes are not only mediums of exchange but also a reflection of the history, culture, and craftsmanship of Denmark and Copenhagen. This legacy continues with coins and banknotes that embody the essence of Danish identity. Both collectors and historians alike value Danish numismatic pieces for their historical significance and aesthetic appeal.

The fair attracts a main audience of collectors, dealers, and experts in the field of numismatics, who come not only from Denmark but from around the world, to meet, exchange, and conduct business here.

In conclusion, the Scandic Hotel in Copenhagen, where the fair takes place, is easily accessible due to its central location and excellent transport links. Copenhagen itself, known for its hospitality and cultural heritage, makes visiting the fair a unique experience.

The Copenhagen Coin Fair will take place on Sunday, 03. November 2024 in Copenhagen.
