Viking 'Hammer and Sword' Pennies of York
These pennies were struck around AD 919-921 in Viking York. prominently bearing Thor's hammer on one side and a sword on the other. Around the sword, and very stylized, the legend reads 'SCI PETRI MO' (St. Peter's Money). The hammer side reads '+ERIVIITOII' (Eboraci Civitas - City of York).
Thor's hammer on one side with the Christian cross and mention of St. Peter on the other reflects the blending of worldviews and cultures at that time in ancient Britain.
- Cold struck from solid .925 sterling silver [~1-1.5g] (like the originals, coins are fairly thin)
- Just like the original ancient coins, each is hand struck, so allow for slight irregularity and variance from the photos
- Each coin shipped outside of Canada is marked discreetly with a tiny punch on the back or side making it a legal 'replica'
