Raven Penny - Viking coin with raven depiction.

The historical model for the reproduction of this Viking coin is called raven penny and was made after a Viking find from England.

The so-called raven penny of the Viking king Olaf or Anlaf Guthfrithsson was common in Ireland and England between 939 and 941 AD and is a remarkable example of Viking coinage.

Link to the historical model...

The Viking coin has a diameter of 2 cm, which corresponds to the historical model, and is made of brass.

The material thickness of this Viking coin is 1 mm, which is slightly thicker than the original coins of the Viking Age.

The Raven Penny is available in the colours antique silver or antique brass.



The raven penny was once minted in the name of Anlaf Guthfrithsson between 939 and 941 AD, while he was Viking King of Dublin (Ireland). At that time, much of England was under Viking rule and was called Danelag.

In 937 Anlaf Guthfrithsson had fought against Aethelstan, King of England, at the Battle of Brunanburh and after his death in 939 successfully conquered York and parts of the East Midlands.

The inscription ANLAF CVNVNC on the obverse of the Viking coin is Old Norse and means "King Anlaf" (Olaf). Est one of the oldest surviving texts in this language.

The obverse of the Viking coin shows a raven, which is probably the sign of Anlaf's war standard and is associated with the Norse god Odin.

The use of the Old Norse language on this Viking coin instead of Latin was a strong signal of the power and independence of the Vikings in the British Isles at this time.

Some Viking coins were closely based on Anglo-Saxon designs, others like the Raven penny had a distinctively Viking design language.
