Historical facts about GBP/DKK currencies

As you know, the pound sterling is the currency of the United Kingdom, which covers the territory of England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. It is currently the oldest existing currency in the world. The heyday of the British pound was during the 19th century and 20th century.

The pound sterling system was converted and decimated on 15 February 1971. One pound was divided into 100 pence. As a result, most of the old coins were demonetized and ceased to be legal tenders. It also simplified the currency system. The pound notes were printed under the supervision of several authorities. In England the Bank of England; in Scotland the Bank is issued by the Royal Bank of Scotland, the Bank of Scotland and the Bank of Clydesdale.

With the gradual fall of the British Empire and the rise of the United States and its currency in us dollars, the value of the British pound also declined in the international market. At the same time, the British economy is still one of the largest in the world, and the pound sterling is highly valuable among currencies.

The Krona is the official currency of Denmark, as well as the provinces of Greenland and the Faroe Islands. Denmark created the second Danish Krona (DKK) as part of the dissolution of the country’s participation in the Scandinavian monetary Union with Sweden and Norway. In 1914 the Union broke up, and the three-member States decided to keep their currency. The crown was briefly tied to the German mark of the REICHSMARK, then to the British pound, and then to the German mark.

Denmark first applied for membership in the European Union’s predecessor community, the European economic community, in 1961, but did not join until 1973. Despite Denmark’s long-term involvement in the European community, the Danish people have earned a relatively skeptical attitude towards the EU, as a result of unsuccessful referendums related to increased integration into European society. In 2000, the population voted not to replace the Krona with the Euro.

But skepticism about the Euro persisted in Denmark even after it joined the EU. Following Denmark’s accession to the European Union, influential politicians such as Prime Minister Pole Nirup Rasmussen also supported joining the Eurozone. He fought for a referendum on the issue, which took place on 28 September 2000, and 53.2% of Danish voters chose not to accept the Euro.
