Coin - Viking War Ship


Replica of one side of a coin struck in Hedeby Denmark ca 825, and found at Birka, Sweden representing a Viking warship with sweeping stern & shields along her gunwales. Some interpret the significance of the fish beneath the ship as representing the sea. Others understand that sometimes a fish is just a fish and the empty space under the ship needed something extra.

1" or 25 mm diameter   Bronze
