Removed the pothole from "miracles" to Beyond the Impossible. Seriously, that trope does not work that way.

My class is reading the Princess Bride, and the teacher said that an exchange student from a couple of years ago told her that Florin is actually Denmark, and that the whole story comes from a Danish fairy tale. Can anyone verify this for me?

No, as far as I know (although there might be some fairy tails with similar plots, since it's deliberately Troperific). The story story is an elaborate joke by the author, William Goldman- there's real book being abridged- the Princess Bride novel is by Goldman himself.

Florin and Guilder are different names given to a coin that existed during the Renaissance period.
