Banknotes of Denmark, 1997 series
The 1997 series of banknotes was introduced over a period of two years, from 1997 to 1999. In the years 2002 to 2005 the banknote series was upgraded with two new security features - a hologram and fluorescent colours. In 2006, Danmarks Nationalbank initiated the process to design a new Danish banknote series to replace the existing series.The key motif on the face of each banknote is a portrait of an individual who made a significant contribution to Danish art or science. The motifs on the reverse of the banknotes are inspired by stone reliefs from Danish churches dating from just after the introduction of Christianity.

Johanne Luise Heiberg
Johanne Luise Heiberg (born Nov. 22, 1812, Copenhagen — died Nov. 22, 1890, Copenhagen), Danish actress and manager, lionized by the intelligentsia of her day.
   Heiberg began performing at an early age, singing for the patrons of her father’s tavern and billiard parlour. She made her initial appearance as a singer-dancer at the Royal Theatre at age 14. In 1828 she played the role of Agnete in a new vaudeville production, Elverhøj (“Elfin hill”). The play was an unmitigated success (it is revived to the present day and is the source of the Danish National Anthem), and Johanne became a star. In 1831 she married the playwright, Johan Ludvig Heiberg.
   Until 1864, when she retired from acting upon the death of her frequent co-star, Michael Wiehe, Heiberg was the premiere actress of the Danish stage, excelling in the classics and in the musicals that established her fame. Her coterie represented the best minds in Danish culture. Until 1879 she directed plays, and it was her encouragement that resulted in Henrik Ibsen having the majority of his later plays premiere at the Royal Theatre. Her autobiography in four volumes, A Life Relived in Recollection (1891–1892), was published posthumously.
