And they took the time to put on some nice serifs. The Danish East India Company is not as well known as its English, Dutch and French counterparts, but it is a remarkable feat to have ran with them with some success (certainly more successful than the Austrian and Southern Netherlands' companies), while the Danish population and economy is so much smaller.

This is the first time I see a Danish India coin. Thanks, Overlord.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
