To remain in the theme of the notes, again a bridge is depicted on the note.
The Queen Alexandrine bridge (Dronning Alexandrines Bro) is a road arch bridge that crosses Ulv Sund between the islands of Zealand and Møn.

|Queen Alexandrine Bridge|
|Queen Alexandrine of Denmark|
Queen Alexandrine understood how to navigate as part of the Danish constitutional monarchy through the turmoil of two world wars and the breakup of many European monarchies after World War I. She understood her emerging role as a “celebrity” and as part of the model for a royal family and that she remained bound by tradition. She used her charm and informality to reduce the gap between the royal house and the Danish population – making sure that the royal family stayed in their hearts in a time where society was changing.
In Danish history research, Queen Alexandrine is mostly seen as a quiet and amiable queen.
|King Christian X of Denmark|
Interesting fact about King Christian X (Christian Carl Frederik Albert Alexander Vilhelm; 26 September 1870 – 20 April 1947), is that he was King of Denmark from 1912 to 1947 and the only king of Iceland (where the name was officially Kristján X), between 1918 and 1944.
Similar to the other banknotes, a holographic image on the front side, is repeated on the reverse side of the note.
