The new Little Belt Bridge between Middelfart and Fredericia was inaugurated on 21st October 1970 and on that occasion Royal Copenhagen produced two different memorial mugs with design of the bridge. The new Little Belt Bridge has three lanes in each direction, for comparison, the old Little Belt Bridge has only one lane in each direction, so the new Little Belt Bridge was eagerly awaited.
Royal Copenhagen has also released a large mug with the University of Copenhagen and the Royal Guard. The mug with the Royal Guard is distinct from the other memorial mugs and commemorative mugs because it has a lid.
