Eric Bloodaxe Viking Silver Penny Replica Coin 866AD BI-210
Our Eric Bloodaxe Viking Silver Penny is a Replica Coin Circa 866 A.D. *** Made from sterling silver. From 866 AD the Vikings began to raid Britain. Coins such as this were used for the Danegeld protection money. The Danegeld was only partially successfully as of course the Danes kept coming back for more. Eric Bloodaxe was a Viking and son of the king of Norway who captured the northern British Kingdom of York. Each of our replica historic coins will satisfy the needs of living history groups and coin collectors. These coins are semi-replica hammered coins that really do look and feel authentic. Weights, alloys, and fineness are kept close to the originals making these replica medieval coins the best on the market. Original coins are carefully analyzed to determine engraving techniques used to recreate the dies in fine detail. To assure that these coins are not mistaken as the real thing, the legend is slightly altered to distinguish these coins for what they are. Additionally, an example of each replica coin is held by Museums for reference.
