Coins from Danish West Indies
Countries and territories › Danish West Indies
The Danish West Indies were a Danish colony in the Caribbean (now known as US Virgin Islands). The Danes established the place in the 17th century, striking a deal with the British to leave the islands alone. In 1916 the Danes sold the islands to the USA, which prevented them from becoming German as these were also interested in the place.
