    Why do some of your coins have a hole in the middle, Birgitte?

      I had to look that up, Reggie, so now I know something that only few people think about today. The short answer is that the hole was made (first time back in 1924), to make it possible to see the difference between coins that previously had been of the same value, but wasn´t anymore. This way of making it easier to see a difference have been used ever since when necessary. I have posted a link (in Danish) now, in case others are interested. Thank you for a good question.

        That is fascinating, Birgitte! Thank you for explaining it.
