The eider on the reverse was reproduced from a 1909 watercolour, "Queen eider", by the painter and graphic artist Johannes Larsen (1867-1961).

The faces of the banknotes show paintings by the well-known Danish artist Jens Juel (1745-1802). The reverse motifs are animals drawn by Ib Andersen, Johannes Larsen and Gunnar Andersen.
