King Canute Penny

This Canute Penny has been lovingly reproduced and hand finished to the original design to look as authentic as possible.

At the start of the 11th century when Canute came to England, silver was an incredibly valuable commodity. Therefore, these pennies would not have been used to buy everyday items, as people would have got a better deal by bartering what they had for what they wanted.

Coins were probably only used for larger transactions of land, weapons or livestock. Vikings were also likely to make payments in the form of jewellery as they liked to display their position in society, and their wealth, for all to see.

This faithfully reproduced coin comes attached to an information card in a protective plastic wallet.
