Abstract:

During the Cold War most countries had civil emergency preparedness systems (figs.3 and 7) to safeguard the infrastructure – for example the vital money supply. In Denmark the National Bank developed a preparedness system as early as 1950–51 that was to function if the country’s only banknote printing works in Copenhagen was incapacitated by an act of war, for example invasion or aerial bombardment. The bank deposited material for the production of the ordinary banknotes in two of its provincial branches. In 1965 it was resolved that the preparedness would be expanded with:

1) deposition of printing plates for ordinary banknotes in Canada and with

2) a special preparedness to ensure the money supply in the transition period between the act of war and the time when ordinary banknotes could once again be printed somewhere in Denmark.

The system was developed at the National Bank in 1965–72 and came to consist of two identical boxes with equipment for producing simple temporary emergency notes at provincial printing works (figs.1,4–6). The two boxes were deposited in two of the bank’s branches in the provinces in 1972–1989, and their seals could only be broken by written order from the board of directors of the bank. After the end of the Cold War and the closing of the branches in 1989, the boxes came back, still sealed, to the National Bank in Copenhagen, where they lay stored away and forgotten until they were found by chance in 2008. The unique emergency preparedness system for safeguarding Denmark’s money supply has now been secured for posterity at the National Museum.
