Danish India (mint of Tranquebar)

The Danes got their main trading post in India on the Coromandel coast, at the delta of the Cauvery river in 1620 (some 10 km North of the French enclave of Karikal and 30 of Negapatnam). The original name of Tarangambadi ("the singing surf" in Tamil) was changed to Tranquebar in Danish. Tranquebar remained Danish for 225 years, until it was sold, together with Frederiksnagore, to the British in 1845. The Danish, who had already abandoned their factory in Colachel in 1824, officially handed over also the Nicobar islands - called by them "Frederik Islands" - to the British in 1868.
