Danish banknotes and coins
Unity was the leading force behind the design of the current Danish banknote series and the upgrade of the Faroese banknote series.
Banknote design is multidisciplinary and results from the collaboration between many fields of expertise. The Danish banknote series is no exception, and we couldn’t have made it without excellent teamwork.
Unity has designed the custom font and the text typesetting for the Danish coin series. The custom font is a part of Unity’s design for the Science coin series and is used on all Danish coins in circulation.
We adjusted each letter carefully to balance perfectly within a full circle for the typesetting along the coin’s rim. We evenly spaced the words by designing each letter a little wider at the top and drawing the base and top of the letters within a circle section.
Tor Slotmann of Unity has also designed the Science coin series. The coin series commemorates the four most important Danish scientific contributions to the history of science; Stella Nova, the Speed of Light, Electromagnetism, and the Atom Theory.
