New medal to commemorate the Queen's birthday

The celebration of the Queen's birthday included the institution of a new commemorative medal.
New medal to commemorate the Queen's birthday

Her Majesty Queen Margrethe II celebrated her 80th birthday on April 16th, 2020.

The Queen has created a tradition to celebrate important birthdays and jubilees by instituting an associated medal. This birthday followed that tradition - to mark the day, a "Commemorative Medal on the Occasion of Her Majesty the Queen's 80th Birthday" was instituted.

The medal has an added crown and is made of silver. It is worn from the 'standard' Danish medal ribbon.

The medal was awarded to members of the royal family, court staff and individuals with relation to the Queen.
