The Danish Krone (DKK) is the official currency used in the Kingdom of Denmark, Faroe Islands, and Greenland. The Danish Currency is nicknamed the ‘Danish Crown’ in English, with the word Krone translated directly to English meaning crown.

The Krone Exchange Rate is pegged against the Euro, which means the currency value is fixed against the value of the Euro.

Denmark is a Scandinavian country comprised of the Jutland Peninsula and various islands. The Capital City, Cophenhagen is the largest city, home to royal palaces, cobbled streets and the Tivoli Garden.
