Denmark 10 and 25 Ore 1924 to 1945
You've got a 10 ore coin, Tanya, and my picture is of a 25 ore. Both look almost identical except, of course, for the big '10' or big '25' on the reverse side. The hole in the middle makes them hard to miss.
These coins were made of copper nickel until 1941. Then there were several years of zinc minting. Copper nickel returned in 1946. In general, the zinc coins are worth about one-half as much as the copper nickel coins.
