Viking 'Hammer and Sword' Pennies of York Earrings
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 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
- As with all of our wire earrings, these coins are double sided and therefore reversible to mix and match whichever way you choose.
- Solid sterling silver earring hooks (not cheap silver plated copper)
