Accepting crown would be nice too. It's the usual name in English.

"Crown" isn't the usual name in English - I've been there a few times (plus Norway and Sweden, which also use krone/krona) and I've never heard anyone (locals or English native speakers) call the local currencies "crown".

fitheach: some actually do, sounds terrible though. In some cases it beats the alternative. I once heard an English fella at a currency exchange office in Stockholm go up to the young lady at the counter and say "I'd like to buy some SEKs please."

Yep. I had to look up the English name. I was pretty sure it was Sjælland and never in a million years would I have thought of Zealand.

Yes, and because it is not independent, Denmark borders the Greenland Sea. Also, Denmark borders Kattegat and Skagerrak.
