Ullr Vinland Copper Coin

Vinland That Might-have-been

  • solid copper

  • Features the norse god Ullr

 

A coin that might have been! Leif Ericsson founded a North American colony named Vinland that was later abandoned. If it had lasted, we think their money would have looked like this. The design was inspired by historical ancient viking coins, using similar imagery and engraved with chisel-engraving techniques. It features the norse god of skiing Ullr and the words "Vinland Moneta", translating to "Vinland Money."

Coin artwork by Greg Franck-Weiby.

This coin is treated to look as if they it has been handled and circulated for years. This process is done by hand, and it is both an art and a science. Coloring and patinas will vary. No two coins are exactly the same! Coins are struck one at a time in the USA using antique machinery and traditional coining techniques. A colorful description is included with history and facts about the coin.
