The Classic proof coin set contains the only coin denomination that has been minted for 2019, namely the commemorative 20-krone celebrating the 150th anniversary of the birth of sculptor Gustav Vigeland. Also included is a mint medal honoring the 75th anniversary of D-Day.

The coin is dated 2019 and is minted to the highest PROOF quality, as is the base metal mint medal.

Gustav Vigeland (1869–1943) is especially known and remembered for having created an outdoor sculpture complex in Frogner Park, Oslo. Having attended art schools in Oslo and Copenhagen, Vigeland spent several months in Paris in 1893. While there, he visited the studio of Auguste Rodin, and it is this sculptor’s influence which can be noticeably seen in a more detailed, but emotional expression of Vigeland’s early work. His first sculptures were mostly true-to-life portrait busts and reliefs, but by 1900, Vigeland was noticeably influenced by medieval sculpture and he consequently adopted a more simple and stylised approach. This later style was essentially what became his trademark.
